This Mulderbosch Cabernet Franc estate vineyard consistently impresses and is annually the stand-out red in the cellar. The basic geological structure is decomposed granite, with soils comprised of varying levels of gravelly clay. The vines are trained according to the Vertical Shoot Position method and spur-pruned utilizing three sets of moveable foliage wires. Leaf removal at an early stage of the grape's life generally ensures the pyrazine or green flavors often encountered in Cabernet Franc are avoided. This practice also allows harvesting to take place earlier, without having to wait for these flavors to burn off at higher Brix levels.

Founded in 1989, multi-award-winning Mulderbosch Vineyards is one of South Africa’s foremost wine producers. They are a WIETA-compliant producer, committing to ethical trade and as advocates of the Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) code, they manage their vineyards by limiting the use of herbicides, fungicides, and pesticides. They use a restrained approach in the cellar to produce distinctive and characterful wines that represent the Stellenbosch terroir. Chenin Blanc is the Cape’s signature variety and they have the largest planting of this variety in the world. In 1996, Mulderbosch was one of the very first producers in the Cape to ferment Chenin Blanc in barriques. The resultant wine garnered an avid following and Mulderbosch Vineyards has since become synonymous with the variety.
