Mulderbosch, Single Vineyard Cabernet Franc, Stellenbosch 2017

The Mulderbosch Single Vineyard Cabernet Franc is an intense expression of Cabernet Franc with subtle notes of fennel, bellpepper and dark chocolate surrounding a core of brambly fruit and complemented by a graphite firmness on the finish.

Producer Note - Founded in 1989, multi-award winning Mulderbosch Vineyards is one of South Africa’s foremost wine producers. As advocates to the Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) code, they manage their vineyards limiting the use of herbicides, fungicides and pesticides. They use a restrained approach in the cellar to produce distinctive and characterful wines that represent the Stellenbosch terroir. Chenin Blanc is the Cape’s signature variety and they have the largest planting of this variety in the world. In 1996, Mulderbosch was one of the very first producers in the Cape to ferment Chenin Blanc in barriques. The resultant wine garnered an avid following and Mulderbosch has since become synonymous with the variety.

Vintage - The 2017 vintage has measured up to the highly rated 2015s and some argue that the vintage has produced wines of greater purity and intensity of flavour. Windy conditions in the summer and leading up to the harvest played a role in moderating excessive temperatures. The increased wind activity had a beneficial effect on the grape quality, notably on the aromatic intensity. Block W was harvested at a low sugar degree to ensure balanced acidity.

Vineyard - This Mulderbosch Cabernet Franc estate vineyard consistently impresses and is annually the stand-out red in the cellar. The basic geological structure is decomposed granite, with soils comprised of varying levels of gravelly clay. The vines are trained according to the Vertical Shoot Position method and spur-pruned utilising three sets of moveable foliage wires. Leaf removal at an early stage of the grape's life generally ensure the pyrazine or ‘green’ flavours often encountered in Cabernet Franc are avoided. This practice also allows harvesting to take place earlier, without having to wait for these flavours to burn off at higher Brix levels.

Winemaking - The vinification was kept simple, the grapes were fermented on the skins for approximately three weeks prior to being pressed and transferred to barrels on completion of malolactic conversion. The wine spent 17 months in 300 litre French oak barrels, of which 50% were new. The wine was bottled without filtration or fining, so may develop a light sediment over time.

Tasting Note - An intense expression of Cabernet Franc, with subtle notes of fennel and cigar spice surrounding a core of brambly fruit. Classically structured, the palate is savoury with graphite textured tannins and a succulent, round finish.
