Wine of the Week – Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé

Happy Wine Wednesday!

As I ponder the future of this little blog, I realize that I want to keep it around and to keep engaging with the wonderful food, wine, and travel blog communities I have come to love. I honestly feel like they are a part of me, and every time I consider scrapping the blog, I rethink it and realize every post doesn’t have to be a book or some amazing meal.

Wine of the Week will pop up on Wine Wednesday whenever I have a wine I really want to share, which will more than likely be a weekly occurrence. There may even be more than one wine! I love receiving wine recommendations, and while I’m not an expert, love giving them.

So, without further ado, I bring you my first wine of the week, a 2013 Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé.


Yep, we went there. In this frozen tundra of a world, we went for a South African Rosé. Sometimes pretending it is warmer and nicer out does the trick to get you out of a seasonal funk. This wine was a great winter Rosé, but I can also see it being an ideal boat wine when the time comes. What I loved most about this wine was the minerality that it brought forth throughout the entire experience. It’s nicely acidic with subtle fruity notes, think citrus and slightly tart cherries. You can’t beat the gorgeous color either! This would be perfect with a simple meal of sandwiches or some sort of grilled seafood, or of course, all on its own when snuggled under a heated blanket.

South Africa is one of my dream wine destinations, so while I wait to have the time and money to travel there, I will happily explore South African wines!

I hope you enjoy my wine of the week posts, and as always, feel free to leave your wine of the week in the comments!

    Love that you’re going to do wine of the week posts! I love enjoy them! It’s a way for me to learn about new wines I wouldn’t have otherwise heard of. I’ll have to check this out since I love rose!

    I love this “wine of the week” idea! I am always looking for new wines to try…and I could drink a rose anytime of the year. ;)

    I love this idea! And I love mineral-y wines. I could definitely use rose season right now.

    Wanted to let you know I finally tried this! David and I are huge fans. We’ll be keeping a bottle on hand all summer long. Thanks for reviewing this.
