Founded by Chris and Andrea Mullineux in 2007, this winery is now one of the most lauded in South Africa. They chose the town of Riebeek-Kasteel, just west of Malmesbury in the Swartland, for its old vineyards on granite and schist soils, reasoning that, with such quality fruit, they would be able to make outstanding wines. It is an understatement to say they have been proved right. This is a great entry point to their wines.
