'Inspired by a Rioja winemaker, hence the Spanish name & ‘extended barrel-age’ styling. Riveting 2014 from Barrydale chardonnay, matured in neutral oak in evaporative environment for 5 years, during which time ‘everything’ concentrated & turned savoury, resulting in a saltiness persisting through to thrillingly dry finish.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (96/100)

'Inspired by the oxidatively handled whites from López de Heredia in Rioja, this is a Klein Karoo Chardonnay that spends five years in barrel and is an attempt to 'push some limits', according to Andrea Mullineux. Savoury, salty and bready, it has a dry Sherry-like note and wonderful texture. Drink 2019-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

Producer information Since 2013, Chris and Andrea Mullineux have been working on a new project that focuses on vineyards outside of the Swartland appellation which have been specially selected by Rosa Kruger. Together with their partner Analijt Singh they launched their game changing Leeu Passant wines. Produced from old vines, including the oldest registered red wine vineyard in South Africa, these wines redefine the South African wine landscape. Their inspiration comes from past successes of the 50s, 60s and 70s, like Château Libertas and Rustenberg Dry Red. Their wines speak of South Africa's heritage and bring the unique wines of the past into the future.
