Notes

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.

Tasting notes:
'Like the other wines in this line-up, this pure-fruited Pinot Noir is exciting. It is sourced from the small Overberg hamlet of Vermaaklikheid which is an arid region about 20km from the sea. As the name states, the vineyards are strewn with limestone which is rare in the Cape and gives it a fine balance of unique ripeness and, dare we say, minerality.' – Roland Peens (March 2018)
