Mullineux “The Gris” Sémillon 2021

100% Sémillon Gris

62 years ago, Chubby Checker popularised The Twist, the first weather satellite was launched, Albert Camus died, Bono was born, the laser was invented, JFK was elected US president, a loaf of bread cost 9 cents, To Kill A Mockingbird was published, South Africa was not a republic, the first animals were successfully sent into Earth’s orbit and back, the heart pacemaker was invented and these heritage vines were planted in the Swartland.

Vinification: Planted in 1960, this extremely rare, dry-farmed Sémillon Gris heritage vineyard on the granite soils of the Paardeberg was hand-picked and fermented naturally in two barrels, left on the lees, unsulphured until bottling.

Try this wine while listening to “Stay” by Maurice Williams, written in 1960.

Winemaker: Andrea Mullineux
