A second glass? Don’t mind if I do!

We are pleased to introduce… Mulderbosch wines!
Allow yourself to be pleasantly surprised by this wine. With decades of wine-making experience under its belt, Mulderbosch is producing high quality, delicious, quaffable wines.

From the Mulderbosch website: “Since the first vintage in 1994, Mulderbosch has endeavored to represent innovation, flair and excellence. This basic winemaking ethos prevails to this day, and while the range of wines Mulderbosch produces has increased, it is more committed than ever before to create wines that proudly display the Mulderbosch seal of approval, yet continue to push the frontiers of wine-making and viticulture in order to satisfy its loyal supporters around the globe.”

2015 Rose 
Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Stellenbosch, South Africa (near Cape Town)
Price: $12.99
Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This is a delicately produced wine that will take you by surprise. It is expressive and vibrant with notes of fresh grapefruit, strawberry, and cherry with a mineral core.

2013 Chenin Blanc
Varietal: 100% Chenin Blanc
Region: Stellenbosch, South Africa (near Cape Town)
Price: $12.99
Awards: 93 points (!), Wine Spectator 
This intricate wine has tropical notes of pineapple, mango, spice, and a touch of ocean air. If you’re a fan of Vouvray, you’ll love this wine. It’s quality rings bright and true with a character that is easily as good (or better) than a French Chenin Blanc.
