This series is to explore sub $20 bottles for people who are relatively new to the world of wine and want to get introduced to various bottles that they might enjoy without having to break the bank. If you are an experienced oenophile, you probably won't get much out of these. Also note, the scores for these wines are for their price point and what you get out of them, if money was no object you can be assured that these would have scored a bit lower.
Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Rose - $8.99
The nose hits you immediately with strawberry and grapefruit but you also get some minerality on the nose. All in all it is quite nice, nothing to write home about but enjoyable. The palate is much better than the nose for me, you get all the same notes you do on the nose plus the minerality shows up a little more and some nice acidity to it as well. Very easy going wine, sure to please most of your house guests during spring and summer. This is a somewhat dry and crisp rosè with balance and has a very slight sweet note to it. This can be enjoyed with most light summer fare in the salad and seafood department. Not a complex wine but a stellar daily drinker during warm months that I drink nice and chilled and for under $10 a bottle, I am hooked.
As always, based on price and what you are getting for it, I give this one an 89/100
