Renowned for its terroir-driven approach, Mullineux’s 2019 Syrah is a symphony of the region’s diverse soils and microclimates, offering a wine that is as intricate as it is compelling.

This wine is the result of a deep respect for the land and a commitment to sustainable viticulture, ensuring each bottle encapsulates the unique qualities of the vintage and the varietal. The Mullineux Syrah 2019 is a testament to the family’s philosophy of minimal intervention, allowing the wine to showcase its natural elegance and complexity.
One of the best vintages of Mullineux Syrah to date. Since the great drought in the Western Cape which started in 2014, the vines had beautifully adapted, resulting in wines with superb complexity and an incredibly balanced intensity. This Swartland Syrah has a classic perfume of wild-growing white Watsonia Lilies, fresh mulberries and black olive pips. The structured palate follows through with intricate layers of kumquats, dark plums, sour cherry and star anise and finishes with powerful and velvety tannins. Best served at 16 to 18 °C and whilst the wine will benefit greatly from ageing, it could also be enjoyed young if preferred, with decanting then recommended.
