Winemaker's Notes

Despite the poignant raison d’etre for this wine, the Mulderbosch Faithful Hound celebrates the virtues of Bordeaux’s great tradition of blending by being one of the first 5 varietal blends in the Cape.

The goal with each bottling of Faithful Hound is to produce a rich, complex wine that comfortably expresses old world class and the generosity of fruit associated with the Cape.
