Mullineux Straw Wine 2021 (375ml)

Mullineux Straw Wine has a deep golden straw in colour and a rich, viscous appearance. The nose and palate is a complex yet enticing blend of dried peaches, apricots and marmalade with savoury, nutty aromas of almonds, marzipan and honey. The intense mouthfeel is balanced by a clean, fresh and very long finish of dried apricots. 

100% Chenin Blanc from two old vine Chenin Blanc vineyards: a 44-year-old Granite soil vineyard on the Paardeberg and a 40-year-old Schist soil vineyard on Kasteelberg, respectively. The secret to Mullineux Straw Wine is harvesting Chenin grapes at normal ripeness levels to capture a healthy acidity. The grapes are dried outside in the shade until they are half raisined, concentrating flavours, acidity and sugar into a super intense but balanced treat.

Fermentation in old French barrels with indigenous yeasts. Bottling without filtering or fining.

Ageing potential: up to 20 years.
