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 high-quality wines made with fruit grown throughout the surrounding Geelong region, Moorabool Valley, Surf Coast, and Bellarine Peninsula. They purchase fruit from like-minded growers and have their own home vineyard and winery in Portarlington. A breath of fresh 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 a lot of critical praise along the way.  

Tasting Note 

Elegant and poised, this wine has flavours of blue and purple fruit, dried herbs, and violets with a silky texture. The fruit for this wine comes from the 1999-planted Barwon Ridge vineyard in Barrabool. There is a small sprinkling of Marsanne, just 2%, and the rest is Syrah, 25% of which is fermented as whole bunches and 25% vinified in new French oak. This wine is harmonious and ready to be enjoyed now.

“Mulline is really humming along. The wines are as good or better every year, it seems.

This is silken and svelte and intricate and more. It’s a savoury wine but it’s also the kind of wine that the crowd will love, thanks to its musk-like notes, its softness, its fineness and its finesse. Sweet red and black cherries, woodsy spices, woodsmoke and peppercorns. The overwhelming impression, other than ripeness, texture and control, is of craft. It feels meticulous. Sexy, but meticulous. It’s a seriously beautiful wine.” Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front 95+ Points
