Mulderbosch Faithful Hound White 2015

The Mulderbosch Faithful Hound White is a blend of Franschhoek Sémillon (62%) alongside Sauvignon Blanc (38%) sourced from Elgin and Stellenbosch. Golden rich in appearance, the nose exudes fragrant aromas of ripe pears and quince, with a subtle touch of caramelised pie-crust derived from the judicious use of oak.

The palate displays silky texture, no doubt from the use of ‘antique’ Sémillon vineyards located in the Franschhoek region, the oldest being planted in 1936. These low-yielding bush-vines planted on gravel soils tend to create wines lacking the exuberant fruit of younger vines, but more than compensate by the rich, scintillating texture they provide. The inclusion of 38% barrel matured Sauvignon Blanc lends a zesty, pithy character to the wine and accounts for the lengthy, citric twist to the finish.
