Mike Dobrovic, winemaker at Mulderbosch, coaxes a blend of open rich fruit with a spine of steel from his fruit. The wine is definitely New World in style with its creamy wood flavors, yet it also has the ability to age, which is more Burgundian in character.
The Mulderbosch Chardonnay is a lively, bright white with aromas of vanilla, spice and citrus, followed by tropical fruit, minerals and lemon on the palate. A combination of soft, elegant fruit and fresh acidity, the wine is both balanced and downright mouthwatering. Pair with lobster, Asian cuisine, creamy pastas.
A rich but well-balanced Chard that offers loads of ripe tropical fruit flavors alongside orange oil, yellow flowers and nectarine pit. The mouthfeel is creamy and lush but balanced by medium acidity and lifted through sweet spice and toasted brioche flavors. With only 300 cases imported, the endless finish and attractive pricetag make this wine worth the hunt.
A clean and attractive Chard with no malo, this is a perfect choice for folks looking for that magical balance between ripe fruit and toast. Red apple flesh, peach pit, orange oil and toasted egg bread all abound on the nose and mouth, with a long and mouthwatering finish that evolves from ripe fruit flavors to soft oaky spice.
Brims with dark fruit notes of mulled boysenberry, cassis and black cherry, all streaked with spicy accents of menthol and black tea leaves. The mouthfeel is slightly creamy, but framed by medium tannins. Notes of licorice stick, espresso and roasted cocoa nibs linger through the long close. Drink now–2014.
A touch buttery on the nose at first, this wine quickly shows mango, vanilla and toast aromas. Big in the mouth, but with a firm line of acidity to hold it in check, the warm flavors of tropical fruits are backed by plenty of toasty, spicy oak. An intense finish is magnified by a dash of lasting acidity.
Vibrant, playful and full of personality, this Chenin from quality producer Mulderbosch is still serious. An earthy, spicy nose flecked with citrus leads into complex but clean flavors of pear and lemon with a minerally finish. Balanced and friendly, and affordable to boot.
Although not barrel fermented, there is still plenty of oak to this wine. A toasty nose of vanilla and caramel caresses green fruit, and in the mouth steely acidity undergirds intense flavors of tropical fruit, citrus and sweet oak. The harmonious balance suggests this wine will maintain its character throughout this decade.
