Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc 2001

Winemaker, Mike Dobrovic, is known as South Africa’s ‘Mr Sauvignon Blanc’, and for good reason. The flavour of this internationally renowned wine is a beautiful balance between cool and ripe, pale straw with a green tinge. The 2001 Sauvignon Blanc has massive fruit content, being packed with guava, lemon and passion fruit – yet maintaining its complex character of grassiness and nettle. The 2001 vintage is wild Sauvignon Blanc fruit! This powerful and concentrated wine has become a trademark of Mulderbosch. Serve at 12-15ºC. Serve with fresh asparagus; char-grilled artichokes; oysters; grilled line fish and shellfish; calamari; smoked salmon; seafood paella; chicken à la king; and oven baked goat’s milk cheese.

ageing : The wine should be enjoyed young but may be kept for three to five years.

in the vineyard : This wine comprises one hundred percent Sauvignon Blanc fruit from bush vines in the prime Koelenhof area of Stellenbosch.

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

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