Wine of the week

This week, Joanna Simon has chosen a rich and complex wine from South Africa...


Mulderbosch Faithful Hound 2013, Western Cape, South Africa

A label and name for dog lovers, for sure, but the stylish, barrel-matured dry white wine should captivate everyone. It's made in the Cape to a Bordeaux model using Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes that were partly fermented and aged in French oak. The oak gives a richer flavour and texture, while fermenting some of the Sauvignon in stainless steel tanks keeps the wine's aromatic lime-curd zing and grapefruit snap. It's revitalising enough to drink as an apero, but has enough body for main-course salads, chicken or fish. 

£90 for 6 bottles, ; £13.60,
