The M'hudi Wines project is a very personal journey for our family. The vineyard lies in a valley with deep table Mountain sandstone soils over clay. The valley floor is very hot in summer but is regularly cooled by morning mists and vigorous doses of the Cape Doctor (renowned Cape Town South-Easterly wind) in the afternoons. We use the grapes from our vineyard to make the wines, but to ensure quality we also source grapes from areas best known for the cultivars.
M'HUDI PREMIUM RANGE
Premium - Sauvignon Blanc
This cool climate Sauvignon Blanc is typically grassy with a fresh and lively hint of melon and passion fruit. The rich tropical fruit, pineapple and honey aromas contribute to a well-rounded, balanced finish. This wine will complement salad buffets with poultry fish and light sauces. It can also be enjoyed on its own as it has a clean, crisp and fresh aroma.
Premium - Pinotage
This medium-bodied wine is a rich purple colour with a youthful edge, subtle oak spice, plums and vanilla on the nose with silky tannins on the palate. The wine is light and easy drinking to enjoy on its own, or try it with barbeques, steaks and pot roasts. You can also match it with oxtail. Although this wine is ready to drink now, it should keep well for a further five years after purchase.
Premium - Merlot
This modern, medium-bodied South African Merlot is bursting with ripe, juicy flavours of red plums and cherries. Its fresh, lively character is also soft and smooth on the finish. The wine is smooth enough to enjoy on its own or try it with duck, chicken in red wine or tomato sauces or match it with a baked cheesy dish like vegetable lasagna.
M'HUDI "ON THE MOVE" RANGE
"On The Move" - Chenin Blanc
Tropical fruit, guava and apple aromas. The bold sweet citrus flavours are backed by refreshing acidity and minerality, a characteristic of our coastal vineyards. A versatile food wine to go with most poultry, fish and salad dishes. Also fabulous as an aperitif for a hot summer afternoon. Serve chilled.
"On The Move" - Chadonnay
This refreshing style of Chardonnay is made with a touch of oak for added complexity and richness. Melon, tropical fruit and citrus aromas, a rounded palate with butterscotch notes and prominent fruit flavours. A versatile wine that will complement virtually any food. Serve chilled.
"On The Move" - Pinotage
A modern style of Pinotage, packed with full red-berry and cranberry flavours, touches of cinnamon spice, toasted marshmallows and soft tannins. This wine should pair well with most red meats or poultry. The sweet fruit flavours of Pinotage make it an ideal match for spicy curries, pizza, flavourful venison dishes and just by itself. Serve at a cool room temperature.
"On The Move" - Shiraz
Distinctive aromas of ripe plum and pepper spices, mouth-filling sweet red-berry flavours and gentle tannins characterize this wine. A touch of Viognier was co-fermented with the Shiraz for the aromatic lift it gives to the wine, which emphasises the berry fruit and spice aromas on the nose. The American oak barrels give a hint of vanilla spice and contribute to the smooth silky tannins. Serve at a cool room temperature.
"On The Move" - Cabernet Sauvignon
South African Cabernets are a lovely mix between new world fruitiness and old world elegance. This is a bold and juicy red wine with red-berry fruit aromas and a touch of oak spice. Classic cabernet cassis and red-currant fruit flavours with silky tannins and a long finish. Should go nicely with a wide range of foods, particularly red meats and pasta. Serve at a cool room temperature.
