Mullineux Quartz Chenin 2018


Grapes for our Quartz Chenin come from a single parcel – “Leliefontein” – of 35 year old Chenin Blanc planted in a quartz kloof on the Kasteelberg. This parcel of Chenin gives the best expression of the quartz terroir on the Kasteelberg – fresh minerality.

This wine is lemon-straw in colour, with a mineral character on the nose and hints of oatmeal, ripe citrus and spice. There are notes of white peach, oatmeal and almonds on the creamy palate which finishes with a fresh, lemon-pithiness. Best served at about 12 °C, this wine will show optimally if decanted when drunk within the first 3 years after bottling. Ageing potential 10-20 years.
