Top 10 wines in the UK press20th January, 2014 by Lauren May
Mullineux Schist 2011 Swartland, South Africa
Writing in The Telegraph Victoria Moore picked out three of the best deals on South African wines this week ranging from a pricey £64 to a manageable £6.99.
At the top end was this South African Syrah from the Mullineux family vineyard.
She said: “Demanding to be considered as a peer to a good northern Rhône, this Syrah comes from impressive wife and husband team Andrea and Chris Mullineux.
“Made from grapes grown on schist, it’s a mightier, more chiselled wine than its “granite” sibling.
“Expressive, violet-scented – quite a wine.”
Price: £64.50 at Berry Bros & Rudd, £58.95 at Handford
