Swartland Rouge is a Mediterranean-style blend based on Syrah with other Rhône varieties. The grapes come from vineyards on different terrains in various parts of Swartland.

After working in several wineries around the world, Chris and Andrea Mullineux fell in love with the Swartland wine region. They settled there in 2007 and began to produce their wines with an authentic and typical profile. The project gained further momentum in 2013 when they joined the Leeu Collection group. As a result, Mullineux & Leeu is today one of the most important wineries in the thriving Swartland region of South Africa.

Kloof Street Swartland Rouge comes from eight different plots located in different parts of the region north of Cape Town. Varieties between 12 and 40 years old, planted in shale and granite terroir and sustainably cultivated. All the work is done manually and each variety is harvested separately at the optimal point of ripeness.

In the cellar, 75% of the Kloof Street Swartland Rouge grapes are destemmed and fermented with indigenous yeasts and cap caps once or twice a day. Then the wine ages for 11 months in 225 liter French oak barrels for the 3rd and 4th year and in 500 liter demi-muidi.

Kloof Street Swartland Rouge is the result of a bouquet of red varieties grown on different lands in Swartland. A perfect introduction for those who want to try a wine from this region at a very affordable price.

Mullineux & Leeu

Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines was born from the collaboration between Chris and Andrea Mullineux and Analjit Singh, owners of companies in the Swartland region. The name of the winery originates from the surname of Chris and Andrea, Mullineux, and from the translation from Sanskrit of the word Singh which means "lion" in Afrikaans Leeu. The Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines vineyards are located in the Western Cape, a geologically ancient area, fruit before the tectonic collision, which occurred millions of years ago, which produced a soil characterized by the crystallization of magma in granite and shale rocks, to which subsequently, due to the movements of the continents, a sandstone deposit called Cape Supergroup was added. Agronomic management follows natural methods. The climate, optimal for the cultivation of vines, is characterized by slightly rainy summers and cooled by breezes from the Atlantic Ocean. The cultivated varieties are mostly: Chenin Blanc and Syrah, followed by Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Clarette Blanche, Semillon Gris, Carignan, Mourvédre, Cinsault, ... Even in the cellar the policy is not very interventionist (no yeasts, no filtration, no enzymes, no acidifications) , ...). In a short time Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines has become one of the best known in South Africa also internationally: Andrea Mullineux was nominated by Wine Enthusiast’s 2016 International Winemaker of the Year magazine
