Mulderbosch Faithful Hound 2017

  • v89


Available for:
The nose is full of brooding, earthy aromas. Brambles, cocoa, forest floor. It clearly shows the Merlot contribution in the muted aromas compared to a more Cabernet dominant blend. Finely textured tannins and savoury flavours such as cured ham and dried porcini mark the palate. The 2017 is a wine of nuance rather than outright power. There's plenty of depth of flavour, and the palate unfolds evenly, revealing a well balanced, moreish blend. Given the quality of the vintage and the provenance of the fruit, this is definitely a vintage that will reward further cellaring.

The 2017 Faithful Hound, a Bordeaux blend with 28% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc, 17% Malbec and 6% Petit Verdot, offers red berry fruit, hickory, smoke and touches of meat juice on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe red berry fruit, and balsamic and cassis toward the fleshy finish, which needs a little more delineation. Not bad, but could be better.
