Mullineux Kloof Street Old Vine Chenin Blanc
Produced by Chris and Andrea Mullineux, the Kloof Street wines represent balance, freshness and superb value. They act as the perfect starting point for discovering the Swartland’s wines. The wines are named after the street where Chris and Andrea lived in Riebeek-Kasteel when they first started making their own wine. Originally renting vineyards and cellar space, they registered their Liquor Licence to their home address, or as Chris puts it – “effectively semi-legally bootlegging out of our garage”
Sourced from 38-year-old low-yielding (3-6 tonnes per hectare) vines, the fruit is whole bunch pressed then fermented in 85% stainless steel for freshness and 15% old French oak for texture.
The new 2021 is just delicious and we all loved it when Andrea stopped by a couple of weeks ago to show us the range, Stonefruits, pineapple, touch of crisp apple and spice, clean finish, great weight and balance.
