Mullineux “The Gris” Semillon 2013

This 55 year old heritage vineyard grown on the granite soils of the Paardeberg is one of the rarest variants of Semillon as it only develops its “Gris” characteristics after 30 years. The grapes are hand-picked and then whole bunch pressed to French oak barrels for natural fermentation. I chose this as my CWG wine for its rarity, intrigue and harmony. Tasting Notes: Grapefruit pith nose with a spice focus of clove and saffron fronds. Floral high notes of chamomile and elderflower complement the textured, lengthy palate of peach stone and ginger powder leading to a taut finish.

Winemaker: Andrea Mullineux
