Mullineux Family Wines Syrah 2016

Approximately half the grapes are whole-bunch fermented and all fermentation is with indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 11 months in French oak, 15% new. The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined.

Tasting Notes: This perfumed Syrah has notes of spicy citrus rind, refined black fruit, violets and lilies. The palate is elegant and restrained with a silky texture balanced by a fresh, natural acidity. The finish is long with supple tannins. Best served at 16 to 18 °C, this wine will greatly benefit from decanting if drunk within the first 3 to 5 years after bottling.

Decanter – 93 points

Love this nose – so unmistakably Syrah in its fresh juniper, Provençal herbs and floral raspberry fragrance. It’s a super-fresh, drinkable style that’s very well balanced with plenty of fluidity and no overt thickness of texture. Beautifully detailed, crisp tannic lines, and while it’s not long it’s very satisfying, with a saline kick – a spitting-image for a good St-Joseph. Aged for 14 months in various sizes of barrel, 15% new. Drinking Window 2020 – 2025

About Mullineux Family Wines

We are a small, highly focused Family winery based in the village of Riebeek Kasteel producing a select Family of hand-crafted wines from the granite and shale based terroirs of the Swartland Region of South Africa.

The Swartland is a beautiful and wild place. The landscape is a series of rolling hills, with a few significant outcrops of rock that form the Paardeberg, Riebeek Kasteel and Piketberg Mountains. It is not an easy place to establish vines, and is a region that has as much of an influence on the vineyards and people who farm there as the people have on the land itself. This brings to mind what film director David von Ancken has to say about the old American West: “The primal, universal power of the landscape strips away everything but the truth of men’s souls.” In much the same way, we feel the Swartland landscape bares the souls of grape vines, and in those varieties that can take the ruggedness, true personality of site is revealed.
