Mullineux, Old Vines White Blend 750ml 2019South Africa, Swartland
Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage:
'Senior vines, some veterans of 80 seasons, in 4 main Swartland soils. 2018 chenin-led with 4 others, harmonious melody of stonefruit, minerals & flowers, same brightening saline acidity as previous. A wine with soul & character, & only one beside Rouge with portion new oak, 20%, deftly handled.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (96/100)
'Among her many other talents, Andrea Mullineux is a superb blender of grapes and parcels. This is a case in point: a cuvée of mostly Chenin Blanc with the remaining 31% divided between Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Semillon. Leesy, mealy and subtly wooded, with pear, quince and peach flavours and a creamy, palate-caressing finish. Drink 2020-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 94/100
With over a decade of dedication to Syrah in the Swartland, and considering the consistency and track record across their various bottlings, Chris and Andrea Mullineux are possibly SA’s best Syrah producers today. 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. Produced in minute quantities, these are must-have, collectors’ wines.
