Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch 2021

Unmistakably Sauvignon in character, with striking
gooseberry and citrus aromas and a hint of herbal lemongrass through to a lifted palate and a delicious, mouthwatering finish.
Producer Note
Founded in 1989, multi-award winning Mulderbosch Vineyards is one of South Africa’s
foremost wine producers. As advocates to 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 has since
become synonymous with the variety.
Vineyard
The grapes come from Mulderbosh’s estate vineyard and from the slopes of
Simonsberg, the Polkadraai ward and vineyards close to False Bay on the lower slopes
of the Helderberg. Some of the vineyards are within two and a half miles of False Bay,
where the strong influence of the Atlantic Ocean has a cooling effect during the
warmest months of the year, encouraging balancing acidity to the concentrated fruit
produced in this warm region. There is a strong geological consistency of decomposed
granite to all the vineyards; while the soils consist of varying compositions of gravelly
clay. The vineyards are trellised and trained to Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP), with
moveable foliage wires. Mulderbosch cultivates without herbicides; and desuckering
and leaf thinning is practiced where required in order to ensure optimum light
penetration into the canopy to ensure even fruit ripening.
Winemaking
Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc was one of the vanguards of the South African industry
in the early 1990’s; it was memorably described by Jancis Robinson as 'the Cloudy Bay
of South Africa'. The playing field has evolved significantly since then, and in order to
remain distinctive, Mulderbosch began ageing their Sauvignon Blanc in neutral 500 litre
barrels from the 2016 vintage. 24% of the blend was matured in neutral 500 litre French
oak barrels for six months, while the remainder was matured in stainless steel tanks on
the fine lees.
