2017 Mullineaux Syrah

2017 Mullineaux Syrah
Swartland, South Africa

Mullineux Family Wines was established in 2007 in the Swartland region of South Africa, owned and managed by Chris and Andrea Mullineux. Within a very short time period the winery established itself as one of South Africa’s most celebrated wine brands, both locally and on the international front.

100% Syrah. Grapes for the Mullineux Syrah come from seven sustainably farmed vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland: four parcels planted in the stony Shale and Schist based soils of the Kasteelberg; two parcels of dry-land, bush vines grown in the decomposed Granite of the Paardeberg; and one on the rolling, iron-rich soils west of Malmesbury. Vines are aged between 20 and 27 years. 50% whole cluster fermentation and pigeage occurs once or twice a day during fermentation. Aged 14 months in French oak 225L and 500L barrels and 2000L foudre, 15% new. Full dark red.

Vibrant aromas of blackberry, black plum, mocha, dried flowers, crushed black pepper and spices. At once sweet, dense and juicy, offering a fine-grained texture and no rough edges to its dark berry, coffee and spice flavors. Finishes with firm but suave tannins and lovely black pepper lift.
