Mullineux Family Wines was established in 2007 in the Swartland region of South Africa, owned and managed by Chris and Andrea Mullineux. Within a very short time period the winery established itself as one of South Africa’s most celebrated wine brands, both locally and on the international front.
Grapes for our Straw Wine are sourced from the parcels of-old vine Chenin Blanc that give us the best acidity at harvest. The vines are planted in the stony Schist based soils of the Kasteelberg and the decomposed Granite based soils of the Paardeberg.
Each vintage, since 2008, we have held back a barrel or two of our Straw Wine and blended them together, refreshing the solera each year with the new vintages. Olerasay 2o is from barrels which have been fractionally blended for the vintages 2008 through 2019, producing many layers of complexity, nuttiness and depth. We have only bottled a portion of the Solera, and have kept a portion back to continue adding to for decades to come.
Bright golden straw in colour, with a rich, viscous appearance. The nose and palate is a complex, enticing blend of dried peaches, apricots, honey and marmalade, with a savoury nuttiness. The intense mouth-feel is balanced by a clean, fresh and very long finish.
Enjoy this delicious and special wine on it's own or with a carefully curated cheese platter (bring on the blue!).
