Mullineux White Blend 2019

Swartland, Coastal Region, South AfricaAbout a quarter of the 2019 White Blend was lost when a transport truck tipped over. So if you find the 2019, cherish it even more than it normally warrants. This Swartland blend of chenin, clairette blanche, viognier, grenache blanc, semillon gris is mostly sourced from older vines, lending greater concentration, and was native fermented in 500-5000L barrels (5% new). Lovely complex nose with fragrant melon, pear, apricot, white peach, with a generous pad of lees on the middle. Herbal imbued and textured, with a great savoury meadow grass note throughout to a humming, salted finish. Long and full in the mouth, this is quite impactful, yet still fresh, this is drinking beautifully now and will continue over the next few years.Tasted: 09 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 60.00 private wine shops ON 38.00 LCBO QC 40.00 Producer: Mullineux WinesDistributors: Sur Lie
