Great Heart is the staff empowerment project of Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines, known for their multi-award winning Leeu Passant and Mullineux wineries. Aimed at improving the livelihoods of those who work for the company as well as their families, the Great Heart wine brand is collectively owned by the winery staff and a portion of all sales under this label go directly to them. They're committed to sustainable and ethical farming to preserve the natural environment & well-being of the community. 

Grapes for the 2021 Chenin Blanc come from two sustainably farmed vineyard parcels of dry land, bush vine Chenin grown in the decomposed Granite soils of the Paardeberg mountain in the Swartland. Vines here are up to 40 years old.

This Chenin has a nose of green and yellow citrus, stone fruit and hint of flint. The palate has lovely texture with a full mouthfeel typical of the Swartland. This is balanced by a vibrant acidity and some pithy character. The wine has a fresh, mineral finish. Drinking beautifully now and over the next 5 years.

Pairs well with seafood, poultry, salads and even slightly spicy dishes. This wine is vegan friendly!

Press Reviews


90 Points-David Lawrason

Great Heart is a brand wholly owned by employees who work for the Mullineux and Leeu families - leading producers in the Swartland region. This is a very fine, bright, balanced and delicious chenin with generous aromas of lemon, spiced pear, and elderflower. It is medium-full bodied, smooth yet fresh and lively with somewhat elevated lemony acidity creating a tart finish and somewhat brittle texture. The length is excellent.
