Mulderbosch was the first producer in the country to successfully create a barrel-fermented style of Chenin Blanc. The ‘Steen op Hout’ quickly garnered an avid following and has since become synonymous with the variety for its charm and accessibility.
The wine is bright in appearance, with aromas of citrus rind and ripe apricots, and lovely subtle oak spice. The palate has lively acidity, balanced by a firm, pithy texture central to Chenin Blanc’s character. There are unmistakable citrus notes, offset by creamy lees making this a deliciously moreish wine.
