Cellar for up to 10 years. Serve chilled.

After working vintages at several wineries in France, South Africa, and California, winemakers Andrea and Chris Mullineux finally chose to found their own winery in South Africa’s Swartland wine region in 2007. The project has rapidly become one of the top wineries in the area, winning thirty 5-star ratings from Platter’s South African Wine Guide and being named Winery of the Year by the same publication four times.

The secret of Mullineux’s success is their network of partner growers from whom they source top quality fruit as well as growing their own at Roundstone Farm in Riebeeksrivier. Wherever possible they pursue sustainable winemaking practices and add only a tiny amount of sulphur in the winery to preserve the natural character of the variety and the terroir.

Their magnificent Old Vines White is crafted with fruit from seven carefully-selected parcels planted with Chenin Blanc, Viognier, Grenache Blanc and some lesser-known varieties like Clairette, Viura, and Semillon Gris. As soon as the fruit arrives at the winery it is chilled to preserve the freshness and aromatics. It’s then pressed and fermented in barrels before being left to age in the barrel for 9 months. The result is a luscious, complex white blend that’s bursting with ripe peaches, apricots and hints of toast, woodsmoke, and delicious spice.
