Mullineux was established in 2007, when Chris and Andrea Mullineux settled in the Swartland wine region, 60 kilometers north of Cape Town. Within a very short time period the winery established itself as one of South Africa’s most celebrated wine brands, both locally and on the international front. By 2020 the winery had received thirty 5-star ratings from Platter’s South African Wine Guide, as well as being awarded Platter’s Winery of the Year an unprecedented 4 times in 2014, 2016, 2019 and 2020.
In addition, Andrea was named Wine Enthusiast’s 2016 International Winemaker of the Year and in 2016 Chris & Andrea were Tim Atkin’s South African Winemakers of the Year.

Grapes for this Granite Chenin were sourced from a parcel of sustainably, dry-farmed 43 year old parcel of sustainably and dry farmed bush vines planted in the decomposed Granite soils of the Paardeberg. These very deep decomposed Granite soils tend to produce wines with great acidity and a flinty, stony aromatic profile.

"A fabulous white, showing mango, papaya and dried-lemon character with stony and floral notes. Hints of dried orange and spice. It’s full-bodied, yet agile and beautiful on the finish. One of the best whites from South Africa and from chenin blanc! From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now." 95 pts, James Suckling

"Cedary citrus, lightly spiced green apple. Quite oaky and chewy on the palate at the moment, dense but not heavy. Interplay of stone-dust mineral and creamy citrus and green fruits. A baby with massive potential." 17++ pts, Jancis Robinson

"The 2018 Granite Chenin Blanc has a touch more vibrancy on the nose than its 2017 counterpart due to its youth, showing bigger and glossier because of it. The medium to full-bodied palate is finessed and powerful, with mineral-driven citrus blossoms and a spicy edge over pineapple fruit. Well done!" 91 pts, Anthony Mueller, WA

"The 2018 Granite Chenin Blanc comes from 42-year-old vines on the Paarderberg. The bouquet offers lime, orange zest and honeysuckle on the nose, plus a touch of watermelon in the background. The palate is very well balanced with a crisp line of acidity, and quite saline in the mouth. It tightens up on the finish, where I would like to see a little more terroir expression. Cellar this for three or four years." 91+ pts, Neal Martin, WA
