'Blend of 3 soil types featured in Terroir range, half the barrel time (12 months). 2018 sleek & supple, with sweet red fruit, white pepper spiciness & slight green walnut grip. Elegantly structured for many years cellaring.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'This is a very expressive wine with complex aromatics loaded with grilled herbs, lavender, fresh bresaola, red berries, cherry cola and savoury black berry notes with a tantalising dusting of white pepper. The palate is full, fleshy, layered and impressively textured with a weightless harmonious clarity of savoury red and blue berry fruits, soft mellow acids and light airy tannins that show a fine liquid mineral schisty grip on the finish. A wonderfully supple Syrah expression that throws a spotlight on the impressive winemaking talents of the Mullineuxs. Drink now and over 10 to 15+ years.' – Greg Sherwood MW, 93+/100

'The Mullineux Syrah is one of those textbook wines that are brilliant for teaching purposes as well as for drinking, of course. A Cape take on a Crozes-Hermitage, this comes from seven vineyards on a combination of schist, granite and iron soils and is wonderfully perfumed and intense, with tapenade and violet aromas and a smooth, spicy, blackberry fruity palate. Drink 2021-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100

'Grapes from seven different vineyards, four on shale and schist, two on granite, and one on iron. 80% whole-bunch fermented. Red and blackberries, a hint of lavender, herbs, and white pepper on the nose. The palate is pure and fresh with fine tannins before a finish that is long and dry – alcohol is 13.5% and there is a finesse and clarity of fruit in this vintage that 2017 didn’t have. Total production: 28 440 bottles and 286 magnums.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

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.
