Young winemakers, Chris and Andrea Mullineux, are making sensational wines in this area of old bush vines and dry land farming.
Chenin and Syrah are the dominant grapes supported by other southern Rhone and Mediteranean varietals. Under the Mullineux Family Wines label, they make a Syrah, a white blend dominated by Chenin supported by Clairette Blanche and Viognier as well as a Straw Wine from Chenin. In addition, they make a very special range of single terroir wines in limited quantities from varied soil type including granite, schist and iron while their Kloof Street range punches well above it’s weight for your buck.
Bywords would include sustainable reasoned farming, natural, minimalist, nothing added or removed apart from minimal sulphur
They are founding members of the Swartland Independent Producers – a group of like-minded winemakers in the area. Their strict criteria & values are self imposed and regulated. Any certified wine from the Swartland will have a SIP Logo sticker and a unique bottle numner.
