Syrah 'Swartland', Mullineux
  • 100% Syrah
  • Sourced from seven sustainably farmed vineyard parcels. Two parcels were from dry-land bush vines grown in the decomposed Granite terroir of the Paardeberg, two hail from the Iron-rich soils just west of Malmesbury and three parcels were from the stony Schist-based soils of the Kasteelberg
  • 90% whole-clusters were gently crushed to ensure a magnifying glass on its Swartland terroir
  • Cap management took place to encourage natural and gentle extraction during the indigenous fermentation and after four weeks
  • The wine was pressed to 500L French barrels for eleven months, followed by an additional 9 months in tank
  • Each parcel was racked in Spring to blend the wine and later bottled unfined and unfiltered
