MULDERBOSCH VINEYARDS Mulderbosch (situated in the prime Koelenhof area of Stellenbosch) is widely accepted as being one of the best white wine producers in the country, and Mike Dobrovic, one of the most talented wine makers in South Africa.
Nice drinking rose, especially for the price. Light cherry, strawberry and decent acidity.
A fantastic wine with an interesting nose redolent with a soft pine note and fresh slightly tart berries that isn't overwhelming on the palette, but instead softens to a slightly oily mouthfeel. Wonderful.
My first CabSauv Rose and my first South African wine. Subtle, strawberry nose with next to no hints of alcohol or vinegar. Color is a deep pink, like one would expect from a fruit punch. The wine is crisp, with a significant fizziness at first, giving way to tones of strawberry and pomegranate with a pronounced herbal quality that I recognize from red cabernet sauvignons I've had in the past. Not as fruity and sweet as a white zinfandel or rose of malbec, but not offputting either.I wouldn't call it a wine to drink by itself, but it seems like it would be ideal to pair with a nice meal.
External Reviews for Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Rose
Fresh and fun with juicy berry and currant notes. Awesome summertime sipper. Compare this to your favorite Malbec or Garnacha rosé.
A Proprietary Blend wine from Stellenbosch in South Africa. 2011 Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Rose 750ml
A soft, watermelon pink colour with orange tints. Agamut of rose petals, lime zest, wild strawberry and freshly picked raspberries assault the olfactory senses. These red berry aromas follow through on the palate supplemented with nutmeg spice and ground pepper which is balanced by a refreshing acidity, softly textured mouth feel that leave a lingering farewell.

Der Wein zeigt eine schöne, nicht zu helle Farbe, ein sehr komplexes Bouquet von Johannisbeeren, Kirschen, unterstützt durch auch etwas exotische Fruchtaromen. Im Gaumen ist er ausgesprochen voll, breit mit einem längeren Abgang. Ein Wein, der sich deutlich von den «billigen» Roséweinen unterscheidet und den erstklassigen Ruf, der Mulderbosch Vineyards mit Stolz vertreten darf.
