The Oddbins Take

Child prodigies can be rather disheartening to those of us that are slightly more… 'traditionally skilled.' (That's our code for untalented tambourine twitchers.) Like Mozart, 5 he was, when he composed his first concertos! Yet those of us in the Oddbins house band, after 12 years of practice, still haven't mastered 'Red, Red Wine!' Some old-world wineries probably feel quite similarly about Mullineux in South Africa.


People have been vinifying Syrah for ages, there's vineyards in the Rhone that are on the 17th generation of winemaker. Yet, it wasn't until 2007 that the Mullineux winery was established. In that absurdly short amount of time they have become renowned as one of the finest Syrah producers in the world. Expressive of spicy citrus rind, refined black fruit, violets and lilies. The palate is elegant and restrained yet with plenty of body and a silky texture balanced by a fresh, natural acidity, this fine Swartland red might well make some old world winemakers, a touch green.
