Red Wine Tasting at Mulderbosch

On 1 March 2024, I joined Mulderbosch Vineyards' head winemaker Henry Kotzé and winemaker Morné McGear at the estate for an intimate red wine tasting and the launch of the Mulderbosch Estate Blend 2021 – the first wine in their 35-year history to be estate-certified. Seated in their grand barrel cellar, Henry told us all about their latest developments. We tasted three red wines, and afterwards we were treated to a lavish lunch.

We tasted the following three red wines:

  • Mulderbosch Faithful Hound 2022: The wine farm's iconic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Malbec
  • Mulderbosch Estate Blend 2021: A new addition to Mulderbosch's range, this Cabernet Franc-led red blend is the first wine in their 35-year history to be estate-certified
  • Mulderbosch Single Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2020: This 100% Cabernet Franc wine is made from grapes sourced from a vineyard on the Mulderbosch farm
