About this Item

Olerasay No.1, N/V
3 (1 x 3) 375ml

Established in 2007 by the dynamic husband-and-wife team, Chris and Andrea Mullineux have, in a very short space of time, established Mullineux as one of South Africa’s most celebrated producers. Their track record speaks for itself: Awarded Wine Enthusiast’s International Winemaker of the Year in 2016, Tim Atkin’s SA Winemakers of the Year in 2017 and Five times Platter's Winery of the Year (2014, 2016, 2019, 2020, 2023).

The Olerasay is a solera-styled, Swartland straw wine, Chenin Blanc and spans the 2008 to 2014 vintages. Released in 2015, it remains the highest scoring South African wine in Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and it is said to age for 4 decades to come.

Critics Ratings

‘It is not the most unctuous wine, the most powerful and ostentatious, yet that precision in the finish is bewitching and worthy of what I think to date might the highest score I have ever awarded to a South African wine’. – Neil Martin, Wine Advocate, 99/100

'Made from vintages 2008-2014, fractionally blended solera-style (hence the ‘pig Latin’ name!). NV richly woven, with layered glacé pineapple, caramel, citrus peel & toasted hazelnuts; vast 260 g/l sugar is uncloying, with lovely freshness, piquancy & length at just 11% alcohol. A Bacchanalian masterpiece, deserved recipient of the inaugural Dessert Wine of the Year award.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide, 5* (2016)
