'Among their many other talents, Chris and Andrea Mullineux are superb blenders. This cuvée of Chenin with Clairette, Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Semillon, Viura and Verdelho proves the point. Savoury, waxy and focused, with engaging minerality, fine texture and flavours of pear, peach and citrus peel. 2022-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, 2021 SA Report, 95/100

'Elusive aromatics of white and yellow fruit, talcum powder, and dried herbs with some flinty reduction also in evidence. The palate is lean and linear despite an alcohol of 14% – strikingly pure, currently very tightly wound, and absolutely bone-dry on the finish. Needs a good while in bottle before truly revealing its potential. Total production: 32 955 bottles and 138 magnums.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'Pale straw in colour, this wine has a nose of ripe, green citrus fruit and Christmas spices. The palate is fresh and richly textured, with notes of ripe pears, almonds and peaches, and a clove-like finish. Best served at about 12 ˚C, this wine will show optimally when decanted in the first 3 years after bottling.' – 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.
