Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines, Kloof Street Swartland Rouge 2016, Swartland, South Africa
Tasting Note: A soft-textured syrah that offers lots of great value for the price point and quality level.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of raspberry, red plum, violet and blossom with hints of kirsch.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied syrah presents well-integrated, soft, medium tannin.
Bottle Note: This honest wine from sustainably farmed vineyards is fermented using indigenous yeasts and traditional winemaking techniques that are aimed at expressing the shale and granite terroirs on which it grows. Syrah 94%, Cinsault 4%, Carignan 2%. By Chris & Andrea Mullineux.
