Mulderbosch Single Vineyard Block W Chenin Blanc 2017

Grapes for this Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc come from the Single Vineyard Block W, which is located in the Rustenhof area of Stellenbosch. The vineyard is situated just over 2.5 miles from the sea and the sea breezes have a cooling influence on the vines, imbuing the grapes with a natural acidity that beautifully balances the ripe, concentrated flavours the grapes reach in this warm, sunny climate. At the winery the grapes are whole bunch pressed, settled overnight and racked to 1,500 litre foudres for fermentation and maturation. Once fermentation was complete, the wines remained on lees for the duration of their 10 month maturation in barrel, which imparted texture and complexity. Mineral in profile, this wine is tightly wound in its youth, slowly maturing over time to release delicate floral nuances, trimmed with a finely poised line of acidity. Textured with delicate spice from subtle oak ageing, this is a superlative example of Chenin Blanc with a saline finish.
