'62% Chenin Blanc, 10% Clairette Blanche, 9% Viognier, 7% Grenache Blanc, 6% Verdelho and 6% Semillon. The aromatics are complex and expressive with a hint of smoky reduction preceding white and yellow fruit, flowers and spice. The palate has lovely weight and texture – some might call this opulent but there’s also a great line of acidity and it’s a wonderfully balanced, seamless wine. Layers of flavour and great length. Total production: 25 041 bottles and 96 magnums.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 96/100

‘The cool winter preceding the 2021 harvest resulted in a slow and gradual ripening period which in turn contributed to the great texture and complexity of this wine, our signature expression of old vines from the Swartland. This blend of Old Vine Chenin blanc with Mediterranean varieties pairs extremely well with fragrant and spicy cuisine like Cape Malay Bobotie. The floral nose shows upfront aromas of white peach blossom, Forelle pear and hints of white pepper, whilst the palate bursts with vibrant acidity, sumptuous nectarines and yellow grapefruit. This wine is best served at 10 to 12 °C and whilst it will benefit from ageing, it could be enjoyed young and will show optimally if decanted.’ – Mullineux and Leeu Family Wines

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.
