    Winemaker's Notes:

    Mulderbosch Faithful Hound is a Bordeaux-style red blend of 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Malbec. It is deep ruby red in color with a nose of strawberry, black currant spice and oak. It is dry and mellow, medium/full in body, with a nice touch of oak. The wine's rich flavors of plums, blackberries and vanilla are well balanced with its soft tannins. On the finish, it is long and pleasing.

    The Faithful Hound label was created to honor the dog Bos ("Bushy" in Afrikaans; he was rather large and terribly hairy), who kept a 3-year watch over Mulderbosch farm after his owner passed away and the farm was abandoned. He keeps his vigil over the farm from under the apple tree, where he was buried several years ago.
