Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc 750ml 2011

Tasting notes
A powerful nose of guava, lime zest and ripe pear braced by honeysuckle and orange blossoms. A juicy palate with opulent passion-fruit, following through from the nose and finishing off with tart grapefruit characteristics. The refreshing acidity is perfectly counteracted by a creamy mid palate and subtle oak-derived spice. The 2011 vintage is a more fruit-driven style that is fresher & drier comparing to the 2010 vintage. A delightfully accessible wine that is mouth-wateringly moreish.

Wine maker notes
This individual new-wave Chenin was made from low-crop Stellenbosch & Swartland grapes. The grapes were harvested in the early morning to ensure coolness, crushed and then lightly pressed; after which the must was cold settled before being inoculated with a select yeast culture. Eighty percent of the wine was tank fermented while the remaining twenty percent underwent natural fermentation in barrel. The wines were matured for five months in a combination of new Hungarian and French oak barrels. The wine was then lightly fined, sterile filtered and bottled. Wood ageing:Twenty percent of the wine was fermented and matured for five months in oak barrels.

Food pairing
