'We wine geeks love to discuss the relative merits of the three soil-specific Syrahs from the Mullineux. This is (just) my pick of the trio in 2019, sourced from a two-hectare block on the Jakalsfontein farm. Ginger and violet aromas segue into a palate of remarkable grip and persistence, with energetic acidity and a savoury, satisfying finish. Drink 2022-29.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 97/100

'Same winemaking for 3 syrahs spotlights terroir. Dryland 1989 Paardeberg vines yield freshness, perfume & length. Florals & black pepper, wet slate minerality & succulence in 2019. Tight-wound tannins - takes longer to open in glass & develop in bottle. Wholebunch natural ferment, 2 years 500L barrels (50% new) & foudres, unfined/filtered. Also 1.5L, as all except Straw Wine.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (97/100)

'From a vineyard planted in the late 1980s on the Paardeberg. 100% whole-bunch fermentation. Archetypal aromatics of red berries, fynbos, cured meat and white pepper while the palate is medium bodied and wonderfully balanced – good fruit definition, moderate acidity and fine tannins.' – Christian Eedes,, 95/100

'The 2019 Syrah Granite is a step up from the Schist Syrah, delivering much more intensity on the nose, where clove and black pepper notes, animal fur and a touch of autumn bonfire infuse the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, good acidity, gentle grip, and fine depth toward the finish. Spicebox, white pepper and clove abound, showing very good persistency on the finish. This is a wonderful Syrah from Chris and Andrea Mullineux. Drink 2023-2040.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 94/100 (Nov 2021)

'The cooler days and warmer nights leading up to the 2019 vintage ensured beautiful fruit ripeness and grapes with naturally enhanced aromatics, and this release shows a particularly fresh burst of mulberry, kumquat and lilies on the nose. The palate is lead by persistent black cherry and shows tremendous youthful vigour and length, in line with Syrah grown on GRANITE soils. These layers of red berry fruit with green cardamom, together with the very gentle oak integration, support the elegance and length of tannin in this wine and it beckons ageing of 15 to 25 years. Decanting is recommended when opened young.' – Andrea Mullineux, Winemaker

Producer information At the cutting-edge of SA fine wine, the Mullineuxs have received many ground-breaking awards and, since 2007, have focused their Swartland efforts on Syrah and Chenin Blanc. Their extensive knowledge of Swartland soils, and what Andrea calls a 'growing technical maturity', has consistently led to the release of some of the most definitive expressions of the Swartand's various terroirs. With over a decade of dedication to winemaking in the Swartland, and considering the consistency and track record across their various bottlings, Chris and Andrea Mullineux are one of SA's top producers.
