Great Heart Wines

For some time, Mullineux founders Chris and Andrea Mullineux had been thinking how they could reward and uplift their dedicated and hardworking team. Lockdown galvanised this intent, and the idea of starting a wine brand that was collectively owned by their employees was born. The Great Heart wines are grown and produced in the Mullineux & Leeu vineyards and cellars, with the same attention to detail the team follows in everything they do, resulting in wines with a natural intensity, complexity and a true sense of place reflecting the characteristics of the region, as well as those who live and work there.


Great Heart (Mentored by Chris & Andrea Mullineux)

Great Heart Swartland Chenin Blanc
This Chenin has a nose of green and yellow citrus, stone fruit and hint of flint. The palate has lovely texture with a full mouthfeel typical of the Swartland and this is balanced by a vibrant acidity and some pithy character. The wine has a fresh, mineral finish.
Great Heart Stellenbosch Chardonnay
The wine has a light pale straw colour and exudes white Phylica (blossom and melba toast on the nose. It awakens the palate with a superb whetstone minerality, thanks to its racy acidity and enticing flavours of fresh Granny Smith apple and candied lemon rind. This rich wine displays complexity and finesse with a broad brioche like mid palate and prickly limestone drives the focused and lingering finish.
Great Heart Swartland Red Blend
The perfumed nose has notes of plums, cherries, cloves and black pepper. The palate is full but firm and fresh with lovely fruit, spice and length.
Great Heart Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep garnet red with attractive aromas of elderberries and red currant leaf. The broad mid palate is cupped by silky tannins and intricate layers of plums, graphite and pomegranate and it finishes with a gentle, yet lingering array of mulberry coulis and light cocoa dust.
Great Heart Franschhoek Cabernet Franc
Typical Cabernet Franc nose, but not overt herbal, Fynbos, Bergamot, blackberry follows through on the pallet.
