Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines

Leeu Passant Dry Red Blend 2015

Bordeaux-ish blend som afrikaniserats med Cinsault. Gamla vingårdslägen, hälften jäst med stjälk. Vinet som är relativt ungt känns väldigt utvecklat. Mörka bär, plommon, gröna oliver, pomerans. Koncentrationen är intakt likt fräschören. Lätt finkornig taninprofil. Välgjort och fina råvaror, men känns inte speciellt prisvärt på sina 699 kr. — 20 days ago

Original Unwooded Chenin Blanc 2018

D3. Very light Chenin. Getting some lemon primarily on the nose. Very light but crisp open yet acidity is restrained. Middle with hints of peach and tangerine. Finishes with more rounded edges than I thought it would. Did what it needed to do to mellow me post lunch! — 7 days ago

Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

Solid blend for the price point. Definitely give it a try. Let it open a little bit for it’s full potential. If I find it for $12 again, I’m buying at least 2. — 18 days ago

Grenache Syrah 2015

Monthly WTF wine group meet up. This month is new world vs old world Rhône’s. All wines tasted blind. 3 flights.

Very unique. Had no idea SA was doing wines like this. I called this old world Syrah. Acidic, full while also being light on the palate. Tar, blackberry, sweet oak, and granite. The more it opened, the more ripe it showed. Thanks
