Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc 2016

Member Review by raindance:

Binny's 5/2016. 6 vintages later and this is still an excellent value. Mary consumed most of this bottle over three evening dinners. I helped on the second night, and thought it was real tasty. What? You wanted me to tell you it had hints of a two day old apricot pit on the nose? I didn't think so.

Excellent South African chenin blanc with a nice crisp clean frontend loaded with lemon and lime citrus. Smoothes out nicely on the midpalate and lasts a decent amount of time on the back of the tongue. Will definitely purchase again.

Nose full of green apple Jolly Ranchers. You remember the hit they had, right? Jumps from the starting gate right to the midpalate where it explodes, then comes a bit down on the finish. Hints of mineral and honeydew. Not overly sweet. Very refreshing.

Abundant citrus and tropical fruit aromas follow through on the lively palate of this alluring Chenin Blanc. It's packed with luscious, mouthwatering 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.

A powerful nose of guava, lime zest and ripe pear braced by honeysuckle and orange blossoms. A juicy palate with opulent passion-fruit, following through from the nose and finishing off with tart grapefruit characteristics. The refreshing acidity is perfectly counteracted by a creamy mid palate and subtle oak-derived spice. The 2011 vintage is a more fruit-driven style that is fresher & drier comparing to the 2010 vintage. A delightfully accessible wine that is mouth-wateringly moreish.

Pale yellow in colour with a hint of green. On the nose, tinned pineapples, guavas, litchi, lemon and lime aromas are abundant. A clean, lively wine with nuances of nutmeg and cloves. Well-balanced and elegant, but with weight and a powerful follow-through on the palate. Stylistically off-dry and lightly oaked this is an excellent food wine.

Wine Tasting NotesClear, lively green apple hues. A tropical nose packed with guava, ripe and green fig, granadilla, litchi, gooseberry and a hint of green pepper - yet still maintaining a complex character of nettle and freshly cut grass. The mouth-filling ripe fruit is supported by crisp acid.

In Nase und Gaumen eine breite Palette von Fruchtaromen, wie Stachelbeeren und Guavas. Aromen von grünem Pfeffer und eine leicht grasige Art unterstützen den Fruchtcharakter. Spritzig, rassig, sehr erfrischend. Ein Spitzenwein!

An absolutely beautiful, world-class Sauvignon Blanc. It's very crisp with layers of delicious ripe melon and mineral flavors. Serve with a simple fish dish and let this wine shine.
