Friday Wine Tasting… Spring into Summer wtih Rose

Wine of the Week…
Mulderbosch 2010 Rose

Finally we had a week of gorgeous sunny weather. Excited about the change of seasons from what seemed like the longest winter ever, I thought it would be appropriate this week to pick up a bottle of Rose.
This wine is a real treat!  Great price point, and delicious chilled, while sitting on the back deck.  Tried and proven, it is the perfect way to toast the start of my favorite season.  Cheers to the weekend!

What the experts are saying:
winemaker’s notes:
This sexy, sophisticated dry rosé combines mouthwatering flavors of wild strawberry and pomegranate with graceful notes of lavender and herbes de provence. It’s a versatile and accessible pink for all seasons!

The Mulderbosch has always been one of my favorites, and this year it’s even more interesting. Would that all South African wines were this well done. This year’s vintage is bone dry, with a mineral finish and just enough berry fruitiness. It’s very well made and should get better over the next 10 or 12 months. And did I mention that it costs a couple of dollars less this year? – The Wine Curmudgeon
