Story:

The TAPPS red is a wine cuvée that co- mes from two vineyards in southern Palatinate:

St. Laurent grows in a light sandy soil near Nussdorf and the Merlot thrives on clay soil near Walsheim.

The vineyards mainly slo- pe to the south. The use of chemicals in the vineyard is kept to a minimum and insecticides are not used.

An eco- logical nutrient cycle is attained using green manure.

The two types of vines were processed separately due to dif- ferent harvest times which depend on the peak of maturity of each type.

The grape de-stemming took place imme- diately after the grapes were received at the winery.

Next the grapes were crushed, fermented and left on the skins for 10-14 days. An over-pum- ping of the pulp called remontage oc- curred twice daily. This was followed by gentle pressing with a pneumatic wine press. Following organic ma- lolactic fermentation, the wine was stored in large oak barrels for several months and then bottled unfiltered.

Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Rosè 2019

Although vibrant and fresh, the palate also has fruit purity and concentration making this a serious example of the genre. The wine is well balanced, with a keen note of acidity running the length of its core, and a clean, delightful flurry of flavour on the finish.The nose explodes with fresh aromas of sliced strawberries, and carries a lightly herbal note often associated with Cabernet Sauvignon. As has become the Mulderbosch House style, our 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé is delicately coloured, with subtle hues of pink and a touch of copper.

Region: Coastal Region

Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon

Alc. 12,5% vol.

Residual Sugar: 4.5g/l

Total Acidity: 5.8g/l

 pH: 3.46

Method: Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are managed specifically with the idea of rosé production in mind. Early picking dates result in naturally high levels of acidity and a bright spectrum of fruit flavours ideal in rosé style wines. Once pressed, the juice is handled as per Sauvignon Blanc, i.e. cool fermentation with aromatic yeasts to heighten the vibrant, zesty aromas and fresh mineral palate. Crucial to this style of rosé is early bottling in order to preserve the wine’s inherent freshness.
