This is one of the highly-rated wines on Tim Atkin MW's 2020 South Africa Special Report

Blend: 74% Chenin Blanc, 8% Clairette Blanche, 6% Grenache Blanc, 7% Viognier, 2% Semillon Gris, 2% Viura and 1% Verdelho

Tasting notes:
'Chenin Blanc is the marquee variety here, with support from 26% Clairette Blanche, Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Semillon Gris, Viura and Verdelho, most of which is sourced from 37 to 70-year-old vines. Lemon, lime and wet stone flavours with some phenolic grip and remarkable palate length. 2021-27' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 95/100

'This fragrant wine has the characteristic floral nose with notes of orange blossom, apricots, mandarins and cardamom. The richly textured palate is balanced by a fresh , vibrant, acidity and flavours reminiscent of peach, grapefruit and hints of spice. Best served at 10-12 °C, this wine will show optimally when decanted in the first 3 years after bottling.' – Winemaker

Alc: 14% | RS: 1.9 g/L | TA: 5.7 g/L | PH: 3.4

About Mullineux:
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.
