Wine Review: I have previously stated that I think that Mulderbosch makes one of the best Chenin Blancs coming out of South Africa. I stand behind my claim and the 2008 vintage of this wine. This light yellow colored wine opens with a light green apple like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and is very well balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is citrus like and very tasty. The finish is dry and very refreshing. I really enjoyed this very versatile white wine. Serve it with broiled scallops or sole. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Abundant citrus and tropical fruit aromas follow through on the lively palate of this racy, alluring Chenin Blanc. It’s packed with intense, zippy flavors of pineapple, lychee, lemon, and lime as well as delicate floral and spice nuances resulting from the light oak treatment. A touch of late harvest Chenin Blanc adds considerable richness and complexity.
