An idea takes flight
The concept for Great Heart came about during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic when vineyard owners Chris and Andrea Mullineux (pictured above) saw just how hard their team were working, under such difficult circumstances, and wanted to reward them in a meaningful way. Great Heart is therefore a separate business to Mullineux & Leeu, but uses the same vineyards and cellars to make its wines.
The labels themselves were designed by Jaco Sieberagen and inspired by his sculpture, which shows a flock of Cape wagtails – a bird known in South African folklore for its selflessness, courage and its great heart.
Naturally, the best way to enjoy these wines is with the great hearts in your life – fine food and wonderful friends. Serve this spicy red with barbecued food, especially sausages.
