The Chardonnay grapes come from the estate vineyard in Stellenbosch. The vineyards benefit from being 14 kilometres from False Bay, where the strong maritime influence cools the vineyards in the hot, summer months, ensuring good levels of natural grape acidity in the final wine, central to the Mulderbosch style of fresh, balanced wines. The soil is made up of decomposed sandstone with some granitic conglomerate stones, known as Koffieklip. This iron-ferrite rich soil produces wines with more minerality and intensity. The hand-harvested Chardonnay vines are trellised using a five wire cordon system. At Mulderbosch herbicides are no longer used; instead they use a mechanical under vine weeder to encourage microbial diversity in the rhizosphere (rootzone).

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 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.
