Mulderbosch 'Steen Op Hout' Chenin Blanc 2022
The Mulderbosch 'Steen Op Hout' Chenin Blanc is sourced from vineyards that vary in age from five years old to 35 years old. Significantly, they are all within a range two to eight miles from the Atlantic Ocean at False Bay, and as such are strongly influenced by a maritime climate, which plays a crucial role in the ultimate wine's freshness and poise. With 40% of the blend matured in large, neutral oak barrels and foudres for six months the Steen Op Hout is a vibrant and fresh expression of Chenin Blanc. Aromas of fresh pear, ripe apricot and subtle oak spice lead to a firm texture with a beautiful fine crisp line penetrating the length of the palate supporting flavours of ripe Granny Smith apples and cinnamon spice. A great match with Asian style lightly spiced prawns and sesame toast.
