Rainbow ‘s End winemaker, Anton Malan, holds the distinctive terroir of their location in the highest regard and chooses not to class the style of wines made at Rainbow’s End into any category such as Old or New World. Each vintage at Rainbow’s End is unique. The wines reflect the unique character of each season together with the unique terroir of Rainbow’s End. Winemaking techniques are changed and adapted in accordance with each vintage in an effort to reflect the character of each season. As such, no wine styles nor production methods are conformed to at Rainbow’s End so delivering the best of what is available in each season.

The wines of Rainbow’s End are of consistent quality each year and not of consistent style. Opinions on the wines are left to consumers to decide with minimal, varying wine descriptions provided on all the back labels.

The entire winemaking process at Rainbow’s End is managed by Jacques Malan and his two sons Anton and Francois. The family is devoted to employing traditional winemaking techniques and modern methods of viticulture to exploit nature’s true potential. Hand harvesting at Rainbow’s End takes place in the mornings followed sorting of the fruit. The bunches are carefully destemmed so as to ensure a maximum amount of whole berries. Different clones of fruit are handled independently in the winemaking process. A natural mountain spring found at Rainbow’s End is relied upon for cooling during fermentation. Musts are cold soaked for 3 days before fermentation so as to achieve the finest colour extraction. Fermentation occurs in open tank fermenters combined with regular punch downs practised in order to achieve the highest extraction of flavour. Once fermentation is complete the skins are lightly pressed in basket presses. Malolactic fermentation is allowed in the barrels after which the wines are racked and returned to a selection of American, French and Hungarian oak barrels to mature for a minimum of 12 months. Rainbow’s End wines are unfiltered and not fined often leaving a natural sediment deposit in the bottles. The use of sulphur is kept to a minimum at Rainbow’s End. The result of these winemaking processes is a balanced and complex Rainbows End estate wine. The wines of Rainbows End are unique in style, easily accessible and have long ageing potential.

The creative design of the Rainbow’s End wine labels was assigned to Marieke Kruger, the daughter of Jacques and Ingrid Malan. The mountain of Bullerskop is featured on the label as it is found on Rainbows End farm, a magnificent part of the Groot Drakentsein. A symbolic rainbow can be seen in the background.
