1 bottle x Mullineux Old Vines White Swartland 2020
White | Chenin Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Clairette, Sémillon
95 points - Wine Align - John Szabo, MS
95 points - Tim Atkin, MW

Andrea Mullineux has a deft ability when it comes to blending, a principal reason that Tim Atkin, MW, named Chris and Andrea Mullineux his 2017 South African Winemakers of the Year. This Chenin Blanc is blended with several grapes, such as Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Semillon.

Pale straw in colour, this wine has a nose of ripe, green citrus fruit and Christmas spices. The palate is fresh and richly textured, with notes of ripe pears, almonds and peaches, and a clove-like finish.

1 bottle x Mullineux Iron Chenin Blanc Swartland 2020
White Chenin Blanc
96 points - Tim Atkin, MW

With concentrated apple butter, delicious yellow orchard fruits and lightly struck match on the nose, as well as an impressively layered palate that dances with loquats and pithy citrus peel, this wine is a true testament of the success of the single soil terroir focus in this range.

1 bottle x Leeu Passant Chardonnay Stellenbosch 2019
White Chenin Blanc
96 points - Tim Atkin, MW

This classy wine has citrus blossom, flint and salinity on the nose. The palate is
packed with citrus zest and crushed shells and has a textured, vibrant and long
finish. Best served at 10-12 °C, it will show optimally when decanted within the
first 3 years after bottling. Will benefit from cellaring up to 10 years.

1 bottle x Mullineux Syrah Swartland 2018
Red Syrah
93 points - Tim Atkin, MW

This Syrah has aromas of violets, black plums and hints of dill and tomato leaf. On the palate there is an abundance of succulent dark fruit with undertones of sour cherry and anise. This multilayered wine is elegant and fresh, with velvety tannins and a seamless, finish.

1 bottle x Mullineux Schist Syrah Swartland South Africa 2019
Red | Syrah
95 points - Tim Atkin, MW

This is the most structured Syrah in the Single Terroir range. On the nose there are notes of black pepper, black fruit and spices. The palate is full-bodied with a meaty, savoury character, plenty silky tannins giving structure and a balancing natural acidity. The finish is fresh, long and supple.

1 bottle x Mullineux Straw Wine Swartland 2020
Sweet White Chenin Blanc
94 points - Tim Atkin, MW

Deep golden straw in colour, with a rich, viscous appearance. The nose and palate is a complex, enticing blend of dried peaches, apricots and marmalade, with savoury, nutty aromas of almonds, marzipan and honey. The intense mouth-feel is balanced by a clean, fresh and very long finish of dried apricots.
