Muldersbosch Steen Op Hout Chenin Blanc

Innovative Mulderbosch was the first producer in the South Africa to successfully create a barrel-fermented style of Chenin Blanc, and so the ‘Steen Op Hout’ label was born. The harvest started as early as possible in order to harness the natural acidity that is so central to the character and freshness of Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc. A portion was fermented in a combination of 300L French Oak barrels and 1500L Foudres, with the remaining wine fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Notes of green fig and ripe peaches, typical nuanced Chenin blanc stone fruit aromas, like apricot, pear and pineapple abound on the nose. The underlying flint and finely spiced earthiness underpins the sweetness and presents the first offering, an extremely inviting one. On the palate it all comes to the fore, but with the real undertaking of finesse and balance being the most critical one. This vintage was very forthright in its expression of freshness, with it leaning more towards a natural acidic balance without compensating fruit allure. A really good fit!
