Chenin Blanc Steen op Hout

Chenin Blanc Steen op Hout

The Cape’s signature variety. We have the largest planting of this variety in the world, and have been cultivating it since the late 1600′s. Chenin Blanc possesses great natural acidity and a succulence on the palate that makes some of the tastiest wines in the world.

Way back in 1996, Mulderbosch was one of the very first wine producers in the Cape to appreciate the unique potential of the grape enough to ferment it in barriques. The resultant wine quickly garnered an avid following and has since become synonymous with the variety.
