'100% Chenin Blanc. Grapes picked at normal ripeness of 23˚ Brix and then left to dry for two to four weeks. Orange, dried apricot, a subtle note of hay and nougat on the nose while the palate sees super-concentrated fruit matched by driving acidity before a dry finish. Despite a residual sugar of 362g/l, this wine is clean, crisp and beautifully balanced. With lovely shape and structure, this is something rather special. Total production: 7 276 bottles.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100

'With a massive 365 grams of residual sugar, this is one intense sweet wine, made from airdried Chenin Blanc grapes left on mats. Intensely honeyed and spicy, with notes of peach and nectarine, subtle wood and marked volatility. Just needs a little more acidity. Drink 2022-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 94/100

'Watch this beautifully viscous gold wine reflect the light as you swirl your glass. This fleshy yet focused sweet wine evokes notes of Cape gooseberry-compote and dried apricots, with enticing marmalade, marzipan and honey aromas. The complex layers of the intense mouth feel are balanced by a Granitic freshness reminiscent of wines grown in these ancient soils. Bestserved chilled at 9 to 11 °C.' – 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.
