Tasting Notes

Winery Notes: "In our search for distinctive, exceptional vineyards in order to create Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc, we have developed relationships with several vineyards possessing unique qualities worthy of capturing as singular expressions of their site. Mulderbosch Single Vineyard Series Chenin Blanc is the result of this joyous celebration of these unique vineyards and the people responsible for their cultivation. Each block was vinified simply and identically in order to allow these special vineyard sites to fully reveal their identity. Whole bunch pressing of grapes to extract a high quality; clear juice fraction was followed by light settling in the tank before racking to neutral oak barrels for an uninoculated fermentation. Once complete, the wines were sulphured and remained on their yeast lees until bottling preparation some 11 months later. Drink now - 10 years from the date of vintage. With its shale soils, S2 reveals an entirely different facet of Chenin Blanc, displaying a richer, fuller spectrum and bold structure. This wine is characterized by a lanolin-like texture, with touches of hazelnut aromatics and a bracing mineral tension that amplifies its savoury persona. The palate has substantial breadth, but at the same time a fine length that maintains a fresh lifted note at the finish."
