"Bright, light yellow. Alluring scents of fresh peach, gooseberry, nettles, white pepper, citrus pith and flinty minerality; time-capsule Sauvignon Blanc aromas from a great vintage. Rich, smooth and substantial but with perfectly integrated acidity giving definition and punch to its fruit and mineral flavors. This cuvee includes a good percentage of cool-climate fruit in 2015, which contributes to the wine's density and verve. Amazingly rich yet pungent Sauvignon Blanc with terrific purity and slowly rising length. Delicious now but I'd love to see this in its dotage."-AG
Sourced from a selection of either cool maritime or alpine sites, the 2015 Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc expresses a wonderful spectrum of bracing varietal and site related traits. The complex nose of green fig, nettle and gooseberry aromas has realintensity, heralding the wine’s pedigree.
MulderboschView all from Mulderbosch
Since its founding in 1989, Mulderbosch Vineyards has widely been accepted as one of South Africa's foremost wine producers. In 2011 Mulderbosch was bought by California-based investment company Terroir Capital with well known wine investor Charles Banks at the helm, who had long desired to invest in the Cape Winelands.
Although wine guide author John Platter famously referred to the Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc as "South Africa's most celebrated Sauvignon", the entire Mulderbosch portfolio has consistently represented high quality wines of distinction for which it has gained an enviable track record. Offerings include our Faithful Hound Bordeaux-style blend; a varietal Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé; a Barrel Fermented and lightly wooded style of Chardonnay; a Chenin Blanc sourced from predominantly old bush vines and a deliciously decadent Noble Late Harvest made from Sauvignon Blanc.
