Mullineux Single Terroir Granite Chenin Blanc 2018

The Mullineux Single Terroir wines are made from small parcels of old vines, usually dry farmed on the ancient granite, quartz, schist or iron based soils of the Swartland. Grapes for the 'Granite' Chenin Blanc were sourced from a parcel of sustainably, dry farmed 43 year old bush vines planted in the decomposed granite soils of the Paardeberg. These very deep decomposed granite soils produce wines with great acidity and a flinty, stony aromatic profile. The 2018 growing season was very dry and yields were well below normal, resulting in wines with incredible texture, depth and concentration. The nose is flinty with some stone fruit and citrus aromatics. The palate is tight, long, flinty with notes of grapefruit and cinnamon-spiced apples. This wine exhibits a fantastic natural acidity that balances out the texture and mid-palate. A fantastic Swartland white wine with great ageing potential.
