Product reviews
Cherry skins, black plums and a whiff of blueberry fruit, tgreat structure with a bright ripe tonality underpinned by a cultured, fine minerality.
Pinot Noir from a site rich in limestone -Vermaaklikheid not far from the southern tip of Africa. Owner Jan-Hendrik Joubert planted several
hectares of Pinot Noir on these limestone strewn coastal plains, and it is from this unique combination of soil and coastal climate that this
Pinot Noir is derived.
The wine was made in open top concrete ?kuipe? and about 20% of the grapes were left whole in order to contribute a little carbonic, high-tone
fruit to the wine. Aged in 228l Burgundian 'Pieces', 20% new, for 16 months.
134 cases made.

With a lengthy, successful stint at Klein Constantia under his belt (amongst other things), Adam Mason is currently Mulderbosch's head winemaker and is one of South Africa's established vinous stars. These wines are made from a selection of unique vineyards that have become known to Adam through his travels around the Cape?s vineyards and are produced in limited quantities, making them indeed rare examples of some of the Cape?s most interesting vineyards. It is small batch, experimental wines like these that are at the forefront

"Raised by Wolves is the brainchild of Adam Mason, winemaker at Mulderbosch Vineyards. The name is a parody of the constant one-upmanship of winemakers: "My wine is a single vineyard." ... "Yeah, well my wine is naturally fermented." ... "Oh yeah, well my wine is hand sorted by berry." And Adam's response: "Well my wines are all of the above, and I was raised by wolves."
The Raised by Wolves wines are all vinified with minimalistic intervention to allow the true character of the varietal and the site-specific terroir to shine through."
