 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
