K&L Notes

Andrea Mullineux’s 2018 Kloof Street is a stunning example of exceptional South African Chenin, produced by one of South Africa’s best winemakers. Named Wine Enthusiast’s “Winemaker of the Year” in 2017, this American expat living in Swartland has been crafting stunning wines since 2007. Producer notes: "The Kloof Street Chenin Blanc comes from three sustainably farmed vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland: One parcel of 35 year old Chenin planted in the stony Shale and Schist based soils of Kasteelberg, and two parcels of 40+ year-old dry land, bush vine Chenin grown in the decomposed Granite soils of the Paardeberg. After pressing, the juice is racked to tank (85%) and older French oak barrels (15%) for fermentation. Fermentation is with indigenous yeasts and lasts up to 6 weeks. The barrels are racked and blended with the tank fermented portion and then bottled."

Awarded “Winemaker of the Year” by Wine Enthusiast in 2017, Andrea Mullineux has been crafting stunning wines since 2007. The Old Vine Chenin is bursting with lemon zest, intertwined with honeysuckle and ripe stone fruit. On the palate, it displays rich texture and powerful acidity, while still keeping a sense of elegance and complexity. This is in large part due to the fact it is produced from older vines ranging 35-40+ years old, which naturally produce grapes with lower yields and higher concentration of flavors.

This is classic Chenin Blanc done beautifully! My favorite aspect is how richly textured the whole experience of enjoying a glass of this is; soft like honey. Tying everything together is a beautiful lace of acidity. Chenin Blanc lovers, rejoice!
