Mullineux is a highly focused family winery based in the village of Riebeek kasteel, in the Swarland region of South Africa. The winery produces a select range of hand-crafted wines. Mullineux was established in 2007, when Chris and Andrea Mullineux settled in the Swartland wine region, 60 kilometers north of Cape Town. Within a very short time period the winery established itself as one of South Africa’s most celebrated wine brands, both locally and on the international front. Their absolute focus is on bottling wines that are a true expression of the Swartland. To achieve this they follow a winemaking approach that is as natural as possible. They do not add any yeasts, acids, enzymes or other chemicals that may hide or disguise the character of the vineyards. Though all the wines are aged in French oak barrels, they adjust the amount of new wood so that it does not interfere with the personality of the vineyard. They are also tending to use larger barrels (called demi-muids) of 500 Litres, and 2000 Litre Foudre.
