Mullineux Straw Wine 2023 (375ml)


Region: Swartland, Kasteelberg

Tasting note:

‘Grapes from two Paardeberg blocks that have the appropriate bunch structure to dry successfully and provide enough acidity. Left to dry outdoors before going to barrel for 12 months (fermentation takes 10 months to complete). Pronounced notes of straw and fynbos plus peach, apricot and quince. The palate is unctuous – very dense fruit and well-integrated acidity before a savoury finish. Makes a huge impression. Alcohol is 7.5% and RS is 336 g/l.’ – CE

‘The 2023 Mullineux Straw Wine reflects a bright golden colour and becomes almost luminous, in the light as one swirls the glass, highlighting the exceptionally well-balanced acidity and attractive viscosity of this vin de paille-style wine. Grown in the Schist soils of Kasteelberg, it shows aromas of sun-dried apricots, warm lemon meringue pie, a distinct pithiness and has an intense velvety mouthfeel – all characters culminating from the ancient soils of the Swartland. Best served chilled at 9 to 11 °C with savoury-lead desserts or a combination of hard cheeses.’ – Winemaker
