Mullineux Straw Wine 2015

Mullineux Straw Wine 2015
Light on its feet.

Too often straw wine is more liqueur than wine for me but the 2015 from Swartland producer Mullineux has a delicacy and intricacy about it that I admire.

Grapes were dried for three weeks, juice undergoing spontaneous fermentation in older barrels, maturation lasting 12 months. On the nose, potpourri before fresh and cut apple and a little spice.  The palate is intensely flavoured with fresh acidity, a subtle savoury quality to the finish. Not overly oxidative, not too viscous or cloying. Price: R285 per 375ml bottle.

#WinemagRating: 92/100.
