2014 Mulderbosch chenin Blanc

Pale in color with a nice crisp nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with nice crisp, citrus notes. This is a super dry chennin, just the way I like them. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice acidity. This is a super food friendly wine. I would give it an 88-89 which for the price is a bargain!

Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc 2014
STYLE – Aromatic & Flavourful
It looks like: The packaging is stunning in its simplicity. In a screw capped flint bottle, it bears the classic Mulderbosch ‘cigar’ label. In the glass it is gem bright, pale golden straw with lime green flashes around the edge of the glass. It smells like: Chenin Blanc whiffs of wet riverstones, white flowers and ripe tangy tropical fruits. Undertow of oak very appealing. It tastes like: A thread of chalkiness runs through from nose to tail. The white flowers, honeysuckle and frangipani sit comfortably with the kelpy minerality in the wine, the aftertaste of which is long and gently waning.
