Beskrivelse

Mullineux Schist Syrah

Druerne til denne vin kommer fra enkelt parcel med 17 år gamle vinstokke, som ligger i Roundstone Farm på Kastelberg. Undergrunden er her meget skifferholdig og giver en meget tæt og struktureret vin.Vinen gæres med vildgær og lagrer 11 måneder på franske egertræsfade, hvoraf 15% er nye fade. Vinen aftappes ufiltreret. Andrea Mullienux beskriver denne vin som den mest strukturerede af alle deres vine. Bouqueten eksploderer nærmest med sort frugt og sort peber og lidt krydderier. Smagen er meget kompakt og dog elegant og har en fast struktur med fin, underliggende syre i perfekt balance.

Anmeldelser

  • 93P - Vinous/ Stephen Tanzer maj 2017:" Full ruby-red. Knockout nose combines cassis, blackberry, black raspberry, flinty minerality, black pepper, game and a floral topnote (lavender?); this reminded me of the northern Rhône. Highly concentrated, vibrant wine with lovely mineral pungency and lift and a strong impression of savory extract. This firm but refined wine finishes long and classically dry, with broad, smooth tannins. This will need time in the cellar to express itself; in fact, my sample held up brilliantly for days while showing more mid-palate pliancy."
  • 94P Robert Parker, april 2017: "The 2014 Schist Syrah comes from a single vineyard, Roundstone this year, which is why you will see it on the label. It has a more upfront and bolder bouquet compared to the Granite Syrah, darker fruit in comparison, hints of cola, curry powder and white pepper, perhaps Cornas-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannin, the used oak beautifully integrated (500-liter barrels and foudres), offering judiciously spice-tinged black fruit on the composed, nuanced finish that displays great length."
  • 92P - Wine Spectator magazine marts 2017: "Solidly built, with a core of succulent raspberry and blackberry puree flavors, lined with anise, singed alder and black tea details. A streak of iron races through the finish. Drink now through 2022.-J.M"
  • 96P + Wine of the Year (syrah) - Tim Atkin MW september 2016: "The Mullineux' familiarity with this fruit - they've been using since their days at Tulbagh Mountain Vineyards - shows in the confidence and balance of the wine. Floral, perfumed and complex, it combines aromas of lavender and rosemary with liquorice and blackberry flavours, stylish oak and its customary mineral core. One to age. Drink: 2016-25"
  • 94P - Jamie Goode: "So floral and seductive with sweet black cherry and blackberry fruit, supported by nice tannins. Focused, quite firm, tannic, but not heavy. Lush and expressive, too."
  • Winemaker of the Year - Wine Enthusiast Magazine november 2016: "For her outstanding wines, collaborative efforts to revolutionize a region and constant drive to be a better winemaker, Wine Enthusiast recognizes Andrea Mullineux as its 2016 Winemaker of the Year."
  • Druesorter: 100% Syrah
  • Lagring: 11 måneder på franske egetræsfade, heraf 15% nye.
  • Anbefales til: Alle kødretter, en god bøf, kraftigt fjerkræ, vildt.

Producent beskrivelse

Mullineux and Leeu Winery - Sydafrikas hotteste vingård

Vingården blev grundlagt så sent som i 2007 af Chris og Andrea Mullineux med hjælp fra 2 investorer. Vingården har på rekordtid høstet et uhørt antal topanmeldelser, bl.a. fra John Platter's South African Wine Guide (Sydafrikas svar på Robert Parker). Indtil videre har de fået tolv 5 stjernede ratings af Platter, og deres Syrah var årets rødvin i Sydafrika i 2013 og vingården blev årets vingård både i 2014 og 2015. Den indiske forretningsmand Analijt Singh købte de andre investorer ud i 2013, efter han i 2010 i forbindelse med VM i fodbold blev bjergtaget af vinene og områdt i Swaartland. Ordet Leeu er sanskrit for Singh og afrikaans for "løve". Swartlands skiffer og granit kombineret med meget gamle vinmarker Chris og Andrea har lavet vin i Frankrig, Californien og Sydafrika, men er overbeviste om at det unikke terroir i Swartland bestående af skiffer og granit rummer potentialet til at skabe rigtig store vine med lang holdbarhed og stor mineralitet.

Op til 97 point hos Robert Parker - what are you waiting for ?

Mullineux har siden starten haft anmeldernes bevågenhed, da det tidligt stod klart at her blev lavet nye, banebrydende vine med fokus på terroir og kvalitet. Neal Martin skrev i 2013 følgende o, vingården: " Having followed Chris and Andre Mullineux's ascendency from their days working at Tulbagh Mountain Vineyard (see Fable), through their maiden vintage in 2008 to the present, there is something almost inevitable about their fairy tale story. It was just meant to be. Spearheading the Swartland revolution alongside Eben Sadie, Adi Badenhorst et al., their wines have raised the benchmark of what wine- lovers should expect from both Mullineux and Swartland itself. And that is not just good fortune, but rather hours and hours of hard work, with Chris out in the vineyards and Andrea in the winery. Mullineux epitomize elegant, terroir-driven, traditionally tailored wines that deliver nuanced scents and flavors while rarely treading over 13.5% alcohol. They do not shortchange wine-lovers on flavor, yet at the heart of their best blends there is an intellectual aspect that leaves you wanting more.
