Founded by Chris and Andrea Mullineux in 2007, this winery is now one of the most lauded in South Africa. Named ‘Winery of the Year’ four times by the Platter Guide in 2014, 2016, 2019 and 2020, Mullineux were also Tim Atkin MW’s ‘South African Winemakers of the Year’ in 2016. They chose the town of Riebeek-Kasteel, just west of Malmesbury in the Swartland, for its old vineyards on granite and schist soils, reasoning that, with such quality fruit, they would be able to make outstanding wines. It is an understatement to say they have been proved right. This aromatic 100% Syrah has notes of spicy citrus zest, black fruit, and violets, which follow through on the palate. The wine is elegant and restrained yet has good body and a silky texture balanced by a fresh, natural acidity. The finish is long with supple, dusty tannins.
