Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc South Africa
$136.29 / case(12)
Method: thanks to our ongoing relationship with our dedicated team of grape growers we were again able to source amazing quality grapes in addition to our own block. Darling elgin faure and bottelary accounted for the areas outside of our own polkadraai ward. Picking decisions centred around ensuring grapes were harvested with both high acidity and optimal flavour ripeness difficult in a year such as 2016 due to the very hot dry and therefore heat-stressed conditions. Nonetheless we managed to schedule our picking to almost perfection and vinification was a simple affair of pressing settling and fermenting the juice in barrel and tank. Tasting notes: with a delicate green golden appearance the 2016 vintage promises a fresh array of wonderful fruit aromas. Papaya melon and limes jostle for attention aside freshly sliced granny smith apples and touches of oak spice. Sourced as it was from an array of mature vineyards across the western cape the wine is richly layered with golden ripe fruit and finely balanced texture. The well poised finish and persistent length are hall marks of this great grape. – mulderbosch
