Topical pic: Which of these two will be next to join the Cape Winemakers Guild?
By Christian Eedes, 31 October 2012
With Rianie Strydom being the only female member of the 45-strong Cape Winemakers Guild, Andrea Mullineux (left) and Nadia Newton Johnson both have strong claims on joining the organisation. Mullineux, along with husband Chris, makes wines under the Mullineux Family Wines label, three wines picking up 5 Star ratings in Platter’s 2013, these being the Syrah 2010, the Schist Syrah 2010 and the Straw Wine 2011, the former also earning the title of Red Wine of the Year.
Newton Johnson, meanwhile, makes wines along with husband Gordon for Newton Johnson Vineyards, the Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2011 rating 5 Stars this year, repeating the feat of the 2008, 2009 and 2010.
