Mullineux Signature Old Vine White Blend 2019 is wine made from 7 different sustainable vineyards across the Swartland area. Sometimes Old Vine isn't used correctly, part of what we specialise in is actual wine buying, not just wine listing.
For Mullineux Old Vine represents vines of ages 40 to 60 years old. Which is pretty impressive really. The breakdown of the blend is 74% Chenin Blanc, 8% Clairette, 7% Viognier, 6% Grenache Blanc, 2% Semillon Gris, 2% Viura, 1% Verdelho. A bit of a fruit salad, but super delicious.
Each parcel is picked and processed separately, it's cooled overnight and then whole bunch fermented. It's a wild ferment in oak barrels with minimal sulphur. It sees 100% malolactic ferment and is aged in old oak for 9 months. The wine itself is highly aromatic, with ripe pineapple, toast, honey, lemon. There are touches of spice, caramel and soft blossoms. If you love rich and textured oaked whites, this is a near-perfect expression.
