Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc South Africa 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Young and fresh, this Chenin shows the stuffing to hold for another couple of years thanks to firm, tight acidity and a solid fruit core of pear, melon, guava and lime rind. The mouthfeel is round, but the palate isn’t heavy. An attractive hint of sweet spice unfolds on the finish..." WE 07/12

Gently floral on the nose with a lovely array of pear, quince and spice aromas. Soft and broad in the mouth, this shows off a riper, fruity side of South African Chenin, though it retains some of the austerity and bitter apple and almond notes that make the wines so attractive. A great introduction to the variety and one that is true to type yet easy to drink and to pair with food. A meaty fish, roasted and served with spanish Romesco sauce would be a great way to get to know this wine; Striped Bass or Wahoo. The finish is lovely here, focused and long, and true to the palate with it’s blend of pear and quince fruit and lovely savory elements finishing with a hint of white pepper spice. 87pts

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.
