Impeccably made, but misses some of the uncompromising qualities of the Burgundian artisans like Montille and Arlaud. — 3 years ago
@Delectable Wine this is the 2017 Mullineux Cape Winemakers Guild ‘The Gris’ Sémillon Old Vines.
Our first time every at the Cape Winemakers Guild Auction and we will make sure to come back! (Tasting was on 9/28/18).
Sixth wine at the Friday Auction Tasting for the Cape Winemakers Guild and fourth still white wine. This is made up of 100% Semillon Gris by Andrea Mullineux from 58 year old vines located in Paardeberg in Swartland. Aged for twelve months on the lees in neutral oak prior to bottling. Only 47 cases produced with 28 being auctioned in 2018.
Light greenish yellow in appearance. Lovely nose with layers of vanilla, white blossoms and some sweet spices. Medium acidity (6.5/10) and medium to medium plus body. Well rounded and rich on the palate with some creaminess and tropical fruits. Long finish. Drink till 2028.
$$$ - Tasted at the Cape Winemakers Auction. Average bid at auction was R5,657.00 ($66.62 a bottle) a case. Highest bid was R6,000.00 ($70.66 a bottle) and lowest bid was R5,000.00 ($58.88 a bottle).

Strong tannins on the nose. Medium to full bodied. Higher acidity. Hints of cherry, leather and yeast, due in part to winemaking techniques synonymous to this wine. Allow some time to breathe, but truly a really nice, robust wine. — 4 years ago

17.5/20 (93/100) Элегантный аромат с нотами цветов, вишни, малины и намеком на ваниль. Умеренные тельность и кислотность. Довольно интенсивные, замшевые танины. Приятное, комплексное вино. #capewine2018 — 4 years ago
