'From own vineyards on the Kasteelberg. 100% whole-bunch fermentation. Alluring aromatics of red and black berries, fynbos, black pepper and just a little flinty reduction. The palate is wonderfully pure and energetic – great fruit expression to go with snappy acidity and tannins that are firm but not astringent, the finish long and super-dry.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 97/100

'Roundstone's schist soils produce grapes with more colour and smaller berries, but the greater concentration doesn’t show in the wines. Floral, svelte and peppery, this is the Mullineux' Côte Rôtie for me, with fine-boned tannins, rose petal and peony aromas, lots of whole bunch clove spice and texture and a meaty undertone. Drink 2022-29.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 95/100

'The yields of the 2019 vintage were lower, but it was clear to us that by this time, the vines on SCHIST soils at Roundstone, had adjusted well since the start of the Great Cape Drought in 2016. This adapted resilience, resulted in wines that have tremendous balance, with freshness and a naturally elevated concentration. This wine shows inviting aromas of orange zest and cherry compote and beautiful hints of Earl Grey tea, nutmeg and fragrant dark African violets. It delivers a gorgeous harmony of Schisty tannins which compliment its well-structured finish and therefore has phenomenal ageing potential. It is best served at 16 to 18 °C and decanting is recommended when opened young.' – 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.
