3 bottles 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. A multilayered wine, it is elegant and fresh, with velvety tannins and a seamless, finish.

1 bottle x Mullineux Granite Syrah Swartland South Africa 2019
Red Syrah
97 points - Tim Atkin, MW

The Granite Syrah is from a single parcel of sustainably farmed dry land bush vines, planted in the late 80’s in the deep decomposed Granitic soil of the Paardeberg. This is the parcel of Syrah that gives the best expression of the Paardeberg’s terroir – freshness and perfume.

This floral perfumed Syrah is the most elegant of the single-terroir Syrahs. The palate is medium to full bodied and delicately spicy, with a silky texture balanced by a fresh, natural acidity. There are notes of black pepper, violets and lilies, red berries and herbs.

1 bottle x Mullineux Iron Syrah Swartland South Africa 2019
Red Syrah
96 points - Tim Atkin, MW

The Iron Syrah vineyard, on the rolling hills outside of Malmesbury, has always been very important in creating a Syrah with incredible mid-palate, deep fragrance and round tannins, due to the ancient, rich, gravelly Koffieklip soils they are grown on.

Brimming with flavours of wild blueberry and dark plum that lead, into hints of tomato leaf, aromatic allspice and a floral complexity. The full-bodied meatiness of this wine, has a freshness and long finish that intertwines with its fine grain tannins.

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.
