The 2013 Mullineux White is a blend of 7% Viognier, 80% Chenin Blanc and 13% Clairette including up to 80yearold vines that is 100% barrel fermented with 15% to 20% new oak (foudre). It has a lovely nose of peach skin, apricot blossom, melted candle wax and just a faint fynbos/menthol scent. The palate is mediumbodied with a slight waxy, dried honey entry with hints of white pepper and lemongrass lending tension and vibrancy towards the zesty finish that displays good length. Superb.
