Winemaker's Notes:

This dazzling Chardonnay flaunts alluring aromas and rich, complex flavors of pear, green apple, citrus and almonds, coupled with hints of orange blossom. Crisp and fresh, it balances bright fruit flavors with intriguing nuances of vanilla, nuts and toast.

About Mulderbosch:

Widely recognized as one of South Africa's most iconic producers, Mulderbosch is well-known for its Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Rose and its Bordeaux blend - The Faithful Hound - and is located east of Cape Town in the Stellenbosch Hills. Stellenboxch has a Mediterranean climate that is largely impacted by the confluence of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, with long, warm summers and cool windy afternoons. Recently acquired by Charles Banks, an American, Mulderbosch has entered an exciting new era of quality. A newly-assembled team promises to re-introduce wine lovers to the many charms of this approachable, easy-drinking, collection of affordable, fun wines. South Africa provokes an unbelieveable platform for making some of the best white wine values in the world.
