10 stellar South African Chenins

2. Mullineux Old Vines White

A Chenin-dominant blend rather than a 100% Chenin but really hard to avoid mentioning as it’s so clearly an ace wine. Old vine Chenin makes up the backbone of the blend to which several small parcels of Mediterranean varieties are added for complexity, balance and aromatic lift. The grapes come from vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland – stony shale and schist-based soils from Kasteelberg, and decomposed granite from the Paardeberg and the rolling, iron-rich hills west of Malmesbury.

Fermentation is in barrel with wild yeasts and the wine is aged for 11 months in French oak barrels, 20% of which are new.
