Mullineux
Syrah, 2010
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Established in 2007 by the dynamic husband-and-wife team, Chris and Andrea Mullineux have, in a very short space of time, established Mullineux Family Wines 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 three times Platter’s Winery of the Year (2014, 2016 and 2019). This Syrah is sourced from six different vineyards in an attempt to represent the different terroirs of the Swartland.

Restrained & moderation triumph over excess in impressive 10, our Red Wine of the Year. Understated elegance, faultless composition & balance, mystifying complexity from back-to-basics treatment of special vineyard blocks. An icon in the making.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2013, 5*

100% Syrah. Winemaker: Andrea Mullineux, age 33. A tantalising wine on the nose – not giving much away but suggesting a good deal. Light notes of dark fruit and liquorice. Then on the palate, that coal-like dark texture that I associate with vines on granite, giving a dry finesse and fresh length. So refined – tannins are fine but slide over the palate. All so restrained and elegant. Definitely northern Rhône in style. GV.’ Julia Harding MW17+/20, JancisRobinson.com (2013)
