Stellenbosch wine estate Mulderbosch has lifted the veil on the latest vintage of its Single Vineyard Chenin Blanc trio, as well as the Mulderbosch Cabernet Franc 2016.
“Since the maiden release of the Chenin Blanc trio in 2013, these wines have been highly awarded and acclaimed across the globe,” says Sean Griffiths, Sales and Marketing Manager. “Having said that, we have broken all prior records with this release. Many have lauded the 2017 as being the finest white wine vintage in the last decade. The evidence of which is now apparent.”
The Mulderbosch Single Vineyard Chenin Blanc Block A 2017 has recently scored a hat-trick by winning the Harold Eedes Trophy for Best Chenin Blanc, the Old Mutual International Judges’ Trophy and the Old Mutual Trophy for Best White Wine Overall at the 2019 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show.
This is on the back of the Tim Atkin MW – South African 2018 Special Report (UK) in which Block S2 scored a scorching 96 points out of a possible 100, Block A scored 95 points and Block W scored 94 points!
The Mulderbosch Cabernet Franc 2016 is a rare and special wine that will appeal to fine wine lovers and collectors alike. The wine is presented with the Mulderbosch seal of quality sandblasted (deep-carved) into the glass and presented in wooden cases containing six bottles.
Mulderbosch Head of Winemaking, Adam Mason, says: “The 2016 is a slightly riper style than the award-winning 2015, and reflects the early, warmer vintage. We have a really special expression of cabernet franc here on Mulderbosch, and it should be clear that there is a thread of quality linking these two vintages.”
