Mulderbosch Faithful Hound
|Region||South Africa, Stellenbosch|
A pronounced cassis aroma characterizes the first nose, but this is followed by dried figs, dates and hints of clove. This initial wave of fruit yields to a subtle forest-floor quality that hints at a classically styled wine. The palate entry is soft and displays a fine chalky texture. Fruit aromas apparent on the nose follow onto the palate as fleshy ripe flavours but find balance with an earthy, savoury character, maintaining the wine's poise. A classic blend of noble red varieties, the wine displays both serious structure and delightful fruit making it approachable in it's youth, but undoubtedly worthy of cellaring, where it will gain further dimension with age.
