Founded in 1989, multi-award winning Mulderbosch Vineyards is one of South Africa’s foremost wine producers. As advocates to the Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) code, they manage their vineyards limiting the use of herbicides, fungicides and pesticides. They use a restrained approach in the cellar to produce distinctive and characterful wines that represent the Stellenbosch terroir. Chenin Blanc is the Cape’s signature variety and they have the largest planting of this variety in the world. In 1996, Mulderbosch was one of the very first producers in the Cape to ferment Chenin Blanc in barriques. The resultant wine garnered an avid following and Mulderbosch has since become synonymous with the variety. Rich and inviting aromas of vanilla pod and fresh custard are lifted by ripe fruit notes of pineapple and papaya. A refined chalky edge is offset by rich and creamy weight on the mid-palate through to a zesty citrus note on the finish. Delicious with fresh, grilled fish and oven-roasted vegetables.
