'Iron comes from the Malmesbury side of the Swartland and is the broadest, richest and most structured of the three Mullineux soil Syrahs, with lots of extract and concentration, bloody, meaty intensity, top notes of whole bunch spices and a hint of stony reduction. Drink 2023-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 96/100

'From vineyards outside Malmesbury. Red and black berries, intense spice and some earthiness. The palate is full-bodied, richly flavoured and smooth textured. It sits quite broad in the mouth, the tannins providing a powdery sensation. As ever, the most opulent of the three.' – Christian Eedes,, 94/100

'Dryland Malmesbury block on deep koffieklip (ferricrete) site. As expected, 2019 quietest of the red trio, yet with the most tightly packed, almost linear fruit focus. Cassis & blackberries, pot-pourri, fine tannins very present but balanced.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'The 2019 Syrah Iron is a little tighter and more backward on the nose compared to the Schist and Granite, revealing more of a marine influence with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with good structure, a little more savory in style than the aforementioned cuvées and maybe not quite as cohesive on the finish. I might broach this sooner than the others based on this showing. Drink 2022-2036.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100 (Nov 2021)

'The 2019 IRON Syrah is brimming with flavours of wild blueberry and dark plum that lead, into hints of tomato leaf, aromatic allspice and a floral complexity. The fullbodied meatiness of this wine, has a freshness and long finish that intertwines with its fine grain tannins. The IRON Syrah with its natural extract, deep perfume and round mid-palate, is always the most open and attractive of the three single soil Syrahs in its youth. This was enhanced even further by the warm nights and cooler days of the 2019 growing season. It is best served at 16 to 18 °C. The ageing potential is 15 to 25 years and 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.
