9.1

@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).

Bush Vine Chenin Blanc 2015

From the fashionable, inland and dry-farmed Malmesbury, Swartland, home of both older vineyards and adventurous and least-interventionist winemakers comes this Bush Vine Chenin Blanc. With fragrant aromas of blossom, stone fruits, straw and apples. The alcohol is relatively strong considering the varietal (But again, it's SA). Premium price considering the country of origin. Round, almost creamy texture that retain certain crispness. #southafrica #cheninblanc #swartland #bushvines #dryfarmwines

Spice Route

Swartland Viognier 2008

14.5/20 (84/100)

Цвет золотистый, умеренно плотный. Аромат довольно сильный, чуть резиново-аптечный, с тонами дуба, оттенками персиков и меда. Резковатый. Вкус более фруктово-сладковатый. Тело умеренно плотное, во вкусе сухое печенье, абрикос, персик, тона дуба. Довольно высокая кислотность, сохраняющаяся в послевкусие.

Swartland Pinotage 2009

15.5/20 (87/100)

Цвет темно-рубиновый, умеренно плотный. Аромат достаточно полный, с тонами черных ягод, немножко болгарского перца, мускатного ореха, палой листвы. Вкус полный, тело довольно плотное. Во вкусе тона сухих черных ягод, нюансы кожи, пряности, характерные нотки Пинотажа. Послевкусие долгое, танины достаточно заметные. Неплохая структура.
