SAVOURY / EARTHY REDS

Savoury / earthy reds - KLOOF STREET RED, Mullineux. Swartland, South Africa

2015 KLOOF STREET RED, Mullineux. Swartland, South Africa

Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Swartland is a region due north of Cape Town, little known until around 2000, but now renowned because of the renewal of interest in serious, savoury wines made from old bush vines (the area has a lot of old Chenin and red Rhone varietals).
From their website:
"Grapes for our 2014 Kloof Street red come from eight sustainably farmed vineyard parcels in different parts of
the Swartland: One parcel of Mourvedre grown on the rolling, iron-rich soils west of Malmesbury; two parcels
of Syrah and one parcel of Cinsault planted in the stony Shale and Schist based soils of Kasteelberg; and one
parcel of dry land, bush vine Syrah, one Carignan, one Grenache and a single parcel of gnarly old dry farmed
Tinta Barocca bush vines, all grown in the decomposed Granite of the Paardeberg. Vines are aged between 12
and 40 years. "
Grape Variety: 51% Syrah, 23% Cinsault, 13% Carignan, 7% Tinta Barocca, 6% Grenache; 11 months in barrel (but no new wood); 25% whole bunches in the ferment
Producer: Owned by Chris and Andrea Mullineux, set up in 2008. The winery is specifically in Riebeek Kasteel, on shale and schist soils
Old Bridge Rating: Savoury but bright. A lot of complexity and drinkability for the price
