Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc

This racy bottling single-handedly put South Africa on the map as a source of world class Sauvignon Blanc. One of the Cape's most heralded and sought-after wines, it garners 90+ scores vintage after vintage. Vivid citrus and tropical fruit aromas give way to zesty flavors of green fig, lemon-lime and passion fruit, with grassy, herbal undertones and a complex, chalky minerality. Briny saline undercurrents cut through the racy, mouthwatering finish.

A bright lemon-green colour with a pronounced nose of citrus, lemon zest, green fig and black current 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.

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 and given extended lees contact. Reductive winemaking techniques were applied to preserve the fruit character throughout blending and bottling.Fermentation temperature: 12° – 16° CWood ageing: None.
