The Mulderbosch Cabernet Franc 2015 and 2016 was rated among South Africa’s top six Cabernet Francs in the recent Cabernet Franc Challenge.
Celebrated at an awards function in Franschhoek on Tuesday 16 April, Adam Mason took to the stage: “Cabernet Franc thrives on the free draining ‘koffieklip’ soils here at Mulderbosch Vineyards on the southern slopes of the Stellenbosch Kloof, 12-odd kilometres from False Bay.
Of the 2016, Mason adds: “One particular vineyard consistently impressed us, being annually the stand-out tank of red wine in the cellar. Aside from being an important component in our Faithful Hound red blend, it now also found a home as a single vineyard bottling of Cabernet Franc. We’re happy to see it pay off.”
