James Suckling (JS) : 90 Points (2015)
Clean and fresh nose of fennel and dill. Balanced palate with a pleasant texture. Fresh and delicious.

Robert Parker (RP) : 88 Points (2015)
Nov 2015 - Neal Martin - The 2015 Chenin Blanc (Steen Op Hout) is sourced 70% from Stellenbosch plus fruit coming in from Elgin. Apparently, it is the ripest Chenin Blanc in years and there are plenty of tropical fruit on the nose with dried pineapple, mango and freshly squeezed lime. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity that is necessary to counter the fresh pineapple and orange zest fruit. The 10% barrel fermentation lends a touch of almond towards the finish that perhaps just needs a little more sustain. Otherwise, this is a lively and vivacious Chenin Blanc.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 89 Points (2011)
May/June '13 by Stephen Tanzer - Pale yellow. Musky peach, spices and flowers on the rather delicate nose. Saline, supple and easygoing, with a nice touch of fruit sweetness and very good palate presence. Finishes broad, spicy and dry. An excellent value in chenin blanc.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 88 Points (2011)
Young and fresh, this Chenin shows the stuffing to hold for another couple of years thanks to firm, tight acidity and a solid fruit core of pear, melon, guava and lime rind. The mouthfeel is round, but the palate isn’t heavy. An attractive hint of sweet spice unfolds on the finish.

Mullineux Straw Wine 2017
Mullineux Straw Wine 2017
The secret to this Straw Wine is harvesting Chenin grapes at normal ripeness levels to capture a healthy acidity.  The grapes are dried outside in the shade until they are half raisined, concentrating flavours, acidity and sugar into a super intense, but balanced treat. Fermentation is in old French barrels with indigenous yeasts and can last up to a year.  The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined.
