This old vine Chenin is tantalisingly TASTY, a real treat for the tastebuds, and 

Mullineux Old Vine White has a nose of ripe, green citrus fruit and Christmas spices. The palate is fresh and richly textured, with notes of ripe pears, almonds and peaches, and a clove-like finish.

The Swartland is blessed with an abundance of old vine Chenin and they use this as the backbone of their white blend. They then add several small parcels of Mediterranean varieties for complexity, balance and aromatic lift. The grapes come from vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland: the stony Shale and Schist based soils of the Kasteelberg, the decomposed Granite of the Paardeberg and the rolling, iron-rich hills west of Malmesbury.

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

Pair with rich fish and poultry dishes.
