SAVOURY / EARTHY REDS
2017 KLOOF STREET RED, Mullineux. Swartland, South Africa
From the Mullineux website:
"Grapes for our Kloof Street red come from eight sustainably farmed vineyards in different parts of the Swartland, aged 12-40 years: Two parcels of Syrah and one parcel of Cinsault in the stony Shale and Schist based soils of Kasteelberg; and one parcel of dry land, bushvine Syrah, one Carignan, one Grenache and a single parcel of gnarly old dry farmed Tinta Barocca bush vine, all in the decomposed Granite of the Paardeberg, and one parcel of Mourvèdre grown on the rolling, iron-rich soils west of Malmesbury."
They are not fully 'natural', but they would describe themselves as 'minimal intervention', with minimal sulphur dioxide the only addition used.
The winery is located in Riebeek Kasteel.
