Located near Cape Town, South Africa, the Swartland wine region has an abundance of old vine Chenin Blanc and other Mediterranean white varietals. The fruit for the Mullineux Old Vine White is sourced from various vineyards across the Swartland, featuring the schist soils of the Kasteelberg, the decomposed Granite of the Paardeberg, and the iron-rich soils west of Malmesbury. The wine is fermented and matured in french oak barrels for 11 months, of which 20% is new oak.

Other Reviews....
This has a ripe and complex nose of cooked lemon, apricot, papaya, shortcrust pastry, chamomile, juniper berries and roasted hazelnuts. It’s full-bodied, round and oily, yet fresh. Flavorful marriage of spiced fruit, flowers and nuts. 66% chenin blanc, 18% clairette blanche, 5% grenache blanc, 4% semillon, 4% viognier and 3% verdelho. Unfiltered. Drink now.
