Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc 2011 Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc has often been cited as South Africa's finest, and who are we to disagree? This is a pretty classic style of Sauvignon, offering a rich and ripe palate, but also giving a lovely minerality and freshness. It's also outstanding value for the quality of the wine!


VINEYARD
The Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc was made from grapes grown mainly in Stellenbosch, with a small amount coming from Elgin on Tukulu and Malmesbury solis.

The vines age between and 5 and 26 years and the vines are trained as bush and 3-wire VSP (vertical shoot positioning). The vines are planted at a density of 3, 300/ ha and the yield is 6 - 8 tonnes/ha

The vines are drip irrigated.

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Sauvignon Blanc

VINIFICATION
The grapes were harvested, crushed and pressed. After this the must was cold settled for two days and racked before being inoculated with a variety of selected yeast cultures. The wine was fermented cold at 12 - 16°C and given extended lees contact. Reductive winemaking techniques were applied to preserve the fruit character throughout blending and bottling

TASTING NOTE
The Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc 2011 is a bright lemon-green colour with a pronounced nose of citrus, lemon zest, green fig and blackcurrant leaves all held together by an intriguing floral note. A vivid palate with an engaging concentration of clementine peel, granadilla pulp, cape gooseberry and melon. Herbal undertones with a complex, chalky minerality compliments the mouthwatering finish.
