The 2019 White Old Vines was left without additional sulfur on its lees until spring and matured in foudres and 500-liter used barrels for nine months. It has a fragrant bouquet of nutmeg, hazelnut and touches of white chocolate, suggestions of orange blossom developing with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a wonderful, tensile opening, hinting at marmalade, quince and subtle walnut and smoky notes on the finish, which has real gusto. This is a wonderful white blend from the Chris and Andrea Mullineux.
Built primarily on Swartland’s hallmark old-vine Chenin Blanc, fruit for this elegant white blend is strategically sourced from a variety of terroirs, including shale, schist and granite. Enticing citrus and stone fruit grace the palate, which boasts a rich, round texture and remarkable concentration.
