Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) 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. Aside from investing considerable effort in our own vineyards in close proximity to False Bay, our quest to find the perfect terroirs for each variety used in the blend leads us from the cool mountain plateau of Elgin to the rich, shale soils of Bottelary, and many places in between. 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.

    sweet and strong cherry aroma, with hints of oak and earth. slighty bold, smooth with strong punch of fruit and bite at finish. not dry, pleasant finish

    A mix of a number of different grapes. Not as heavy has other reds but very good and smooth!
