Chenin Blanc is one of the least understood and least appreciated grapes in the world. And that’s a shame because it makes a great wine. Some people confuse it with Sauvignon Blanc, but the two grapes are very different. Both can make great wine, but the Chenin Blanc often is more complex and has better aging potential. Chenin is versatile, and you will find it in everything from sparkling wines to world-class dessert wines.
The Mulderbosch is a great expression of Chenin Blanc, full of opulent fruit and crisp acidity. It starts with aromas of lime and pear with touches of honeysuckle. There is a beautiful mix of creaminess and tart grapefruit on the palate. It finishes with a spicy note.
