Producer

Mulline Vintners is a collaboration between Ben Mullen, a qualified viticulturist and winemaker, and Ben Hine, a lawyer and the business mind behind the project. Together, the two Bens set out to produce exceptional wines made with fruit grown throughout the surrounding Geelong region, Moorabool Valley, Surf Coast, and Bellerine Peninsula. They purchase fruit from like-minded growers and also have their own home vineyard and winery in Portarlington. A breath of fresh 'Surf Coast' air for the Geelong region, Mulline is a young, passionate, forward-thinking collaboration injecting new life and energy into the Geelong wine scene and collecting some critical praise along the way.  

Tasting Note

Mulline's early release, entry-level Syrah, is full of juicy blue fruits, plum, pepper, and silky tannins. Ben Mullen purchases the majority of the fruit for this wine from a vineyard in Mooroobool Valley, Geelong. Once the fruit is brought to his winery in Portarlington, 10% of the fruit is left as whole bunches, and the rest is destemmed. Once fermented, the wine is aged for 9 months before release, 10% of which is in new oak—resulting in a bright, fruit-forward Syrah ready for your enjoyment.
