Mullineux is a founding member of one of the most exciting young group of wine producers in South Africa, The Swartland Independents. This group of likeminded producers has set guidelines for vineyard and cellar practices with the goal of creating wines that enhance the expression of the Swartland terroir.

With an infusion of capital from a new partner Analjit Singh, Andrea and Chris Mullineux have purchased the Roundstone farm in the Western slopes of the Kasteelburg Mountain. The vineyard was the source of one of their treasured old vine Syrah’s. Together with Rosa Krueger, their viticulturist, they have started a new planting program focused on Syrah, Chenin blanc, Grenache, Cinsault, Clairette blanche, Carignan, Semillon, Roussanne, and Maccabeu, The Schist, Quartz, and Sandstone soils at Roundstone produce wines with superb minerality and texture. Roundstone is in the process of Organic Certification. They plant cover crops to prevent erosion, and make extensive use of mulch and their own compost, prepared from the free range cattle on the farm.

 

Kruger is recognized as the top viticulturist in South Africa. Many of the young wine producers refer to her as the “Vine Whisperer”. She has been documenting all of the valuable sources of old vine vineyards throughout the Western Cape.

 

Chris and Andrea Mullineux have assembled an impressive team, purchased an exciting new vineyard and have clearly established themselves as one of the top producers in the Swartland and in South Africa.
