Despite the poignant raison detre for this wine, the Mulderbosch Faithful Hound celebrates the virtues of Bordeauxs 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.

When Mulderbosch founder, Larry Jacobs, bought the farm in 1989 the community referred to the property as 'vuilplasie', Afrikaans for 'dirty little farm'. Shortly after, he partnered with Mike Dobrovic, known as the South African Mr Sauvignon Blanc, and together they cleaned up the property and planted the first vineyards. A (small) cellar was later built and the first set of wines were released: Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. The dream was to produce wine, but certainly not just any wine; they had to consistently reflect innovation, creativity and excellence. & - ; Soon, Mulderbosch gained international traction with a growing list of accolades and awards. In 2011, Mulderbosch was ushered into a new era of management, introducing Adam as head of winemaking. These changes ensured further international success and our position as leaders within the South African wine industry. & - ; As an innovator, Mulderbosch was the first producer in the country to successfully create a barrel-fermented style of Chenin Blanc, and so our 'Steen Op Hout' label was born. Trailblazing the infant ros category with our Ros of Cabernet Sauvignon continued this thread of innovation. Today, Mulderbosch has achieved commercial success world-wide and has affirmed our identity as a producer of distinctive wines, representative of the soils and climate in which our grapes are grown View More
