75cl * 13% ABV * Swartland, South Africa
Chris and Andrea Mullineux were originally set on separate paths to become an accountant and an astronaut, respectively, but their paths converged and they found themselves making wine. Launched only in 2007, the Mullineux name has already become synonymous with dynamic and exciting South African winemaking, specialising in Mediterranean varieties sourced from sustainable and dry farmed parcels of old vines. A finely structured, elegant Syrah - closely resembling Cornas in style - this is layered with black fruit, spice and violet. Silky in texture, with dusty tannins. Pair with roast beef or duck.
