Mulderbosch Rose of Cabernet Stellenbosch 2017

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

All cabernet all the time here with great complexity to the herbaceous aromas of cut grass, dried herbs and bell peppers that are layered over a base of red fruit. Supple and fairly full in the mouth, there’s a hint of sweetness here that is well balanced by the solid acidity, yielding a moderately large scaled rose with relatively dark berry fruit, hints of blackberry and blackcurrant fill the palate and fade gently on the modest finish that ends with an attractive hint of blackberry jamminess. 87pts

Really stinky and reduced out of the bottle. This takes time to open, but does so with a beautiful array of sweet aromas that recall smoky roasted red peppers, dried cherries and persimmons. Nicely bright on entry with a nice medium-bodied feel in the mouth. This is a bit simple, though. It has excellent fruit and nice drive on the finish, which is nicely aromatic. 86pts

On the nose this is mineral, lightly jammy strawberry, with a touch of menthol and green herb for good measure. A nice richness on the palate with plenty of acidity backing it up, lovely light berry flavor tones with nuanced herbal and mineral notes, refreshing and cleansing with a long mineral wash on the finish 89pts

I am a fan of just about all of the Mulderbosch wines, but this rose has become a real favorite. Crisp and clean well defined. Great food wine.

An excellent "hardy" rose. Very good value.

Nice drinking rose, especially for the price. Light cherry, strawberry and decent acidity.

A sexy pink colour with lively hues. The nose combines aromas of ripe blood-orange, cherry-drops and black currant cordial with fragrant sandalwood whiffs. The gorgeously weighted palate balances juicy fruit flavours of fresh cherry and watermelon with racy acidity and finishes on a pleasantly persistant, zesty note.

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.

Vibrant and lively with forward notes of fresh red berries and pink florals along with a touch of watermelon rind and soft sandalwood. Juicy and clean in the mouth with a crisp, mouthwatering finish. Drink now.

Fresh and fun, with juicy berry and currant notes. Awesome summertime sipper. Compare this to your favorite Malbec or Garnacha rosé.
