Mullineux Family Wines Syrah Swartland 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Mullineux Syrah, Swartland is a restrained style of Syrah; the nose combinesclean black fruit with some herbal and meaty notes. Full-bodied with a balancednatural acidity and black fruit characters, followed with an elegantconcentration. A very attractive, classy wine. (Decanter.com, Ten Best Wines from Berry Bros., June 09)

We are a small, highly focused Family winery based in the village of Riebeek Kasteel producing a select Family of hand-crafted wines from the granite and shale based terroirs of the Swartland Region of South Africa.   The Swartland is a beautiful and wild place. The landscape is a series of rolling hills, with a few significant outcrops of rock that form the Paardeberg, Riebeek Kasteel and Piketberg Mountains. It is not an easy place to establish vines, and is a region that has as much of an influence on the vineyards and people who farm there as the people have on the land itself. This brings to mind what film director David von Ancken has to say about the old American West.   “The primal, universal power of the landscape strips away everything but the truth of men’s souls.”   In much the same way, we feel the Swartland landscape bares the souls of grape vines, and in those varieties that can take the ruggedness, true personality of site is revealed.

It's meaty, like a rich au jus. Red and blue fruits. Good. - WS Grand Tour 2011
