Dessert Wine
Chenin Blanc
Swartland, South Africa
Mullineux is a highly focused family winery based near the village of Riebeek Kasteel, in the Swartland region of South Africa.  Established in 2007, Chris and Andrea Mullineux (alongside business partners Analjit Singh and Peter Dart) produce a select range of hand-crafted wines from the granite and shale based soils of the area.  To create this delicious Straw wine the grapes are dried outside in the shade until they are half raisined, concentrating flavours, acidity and sugar into a super intense, but balanced treat.  Fermentation is in old French barrels with indigenous yeasts and can last up to a year.  The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined.

Deep golden straw in colour, with a rich, viscous appearance. The nose and palate is a complex, enticing blend of dried peaches, apricots and marmalade, with savoury, nutty aromas of almonds, marzipan and honey. The intense mouth-feel is balanced by a clean, fresh and very long finish of dried apricots.

Food pairing:  Chocolate and clementine log
