Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc 1998

Winemaker, Mike Dobrovic, is known as South Africa’s ‘Mr Sauvignon Blanc,’ and for good reason. This internationally renowned wine is a beautiful balance between cool and ripe flavours. A mouthwatering classic, the 1998 Sauvignon Blanc is a truly stunning example of grassy, gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours supported by a full, rich palate. This powerful and concentrated wine has become a trademark of Mulderbosch. Ideal with asparagus, artichoke, oysters, grilled fish/shellfish, calamari, smoked salmon, seafood paella, chicken à la king, goat’s milk cheese.

ageing : The wine should be drunk young but may be kept for 3 to 5 years.

in the vineyard : 100% Sauvignon Blanc fruit with the majority sourced from bush vines.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested in the early morning to ensure coolness, crushed and lightly pressed.

in the cellar : The must was cold settled for two days before being inoculated with cultured yeast. The wine was cold fermented and reductive winemaking techniques were used to ensure minimal contact with oxygen, thus preserving fruit character. It was then blended and fined before bottling.
