‘Vibrant & bright 2022 from bushvines on home-farm, producing smaller berries with higher skin:juice ratio, aiding tannin & texture. Lime, fennel, quince & fresh apple on finely balanced & layered palate. Excellent expression of terroir & craftsmanship. Keep some for later drinking pleasure, as with 2021 (4.5 stars, 94 pts).’ – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

‘Grapes from the Mulleneux’s own Kasteelberg property. Yellow apple, stone fruit, orange, melon and spice on the nose. Rich and relatively broad on the palate with some phenolic grip to the finish. More exotic than its counterpart above but still essentially savoury and balanced. Alc: 13.5%.’ – Christian Eedes,, 95/100

‘Planted on the contours of the beautiful Roundstone property in 2014, this is more approachable than its sister Granite Chenin Blanc, this is a rich, dense, pear, nectarine and yellow apple-fruited white with understated older wood, a nip of tannin and fresh supporting acidity. 2023-28’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 94/100

‘The 2022 Chenin Blanc Schist is aged in 500-liter older barrels with no bâtonnage. It has a beautifully defined bouquet with pressed white flowers, litchee, powdered stone and a touch of yellow fruit. The palate is very well-balanced with a texturally seductive opening, lightly spiced with plenty of spicy ginger here and a vivid white pepper-driven finish that lingers in the mouth. Excellent. 2024-2040’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 93/100

‘The 2022 growing season was moderate with no heat waves, which contributed to the inviting phenolic balance, full palate and jubilant freshness that you would come to expect from SCHIST soils in these growing conditions. Highlighted by fresh quince, white peach and hints of lime, the nose of this Chenin Blanc is greatly inviting, and it follows through with a firm chalky texture and a lively, zesty finish. The ageing potential is at least 20 years, and this wine will show optimally if decanted.’ – Winemaker

Producer information 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.
