Vondeling Sauvignon Blanc is a top and easy drinking white wine from South Africa. Zesty, fresh with a hint of gooseberry. Drink chilled with or without food. A wine that will match really nicely with shell fish, grilled mackerel, sardines, sundried figs, sour dough bread and soft cheeses. For added interest, this is a Vegan wine.
Welcome to the Voor-Paardeberg; a Western Cape wine region that has all the charm of an undiscovered country landscape, yet is easily accessible, approximately 45 minutes’ drive from Cape Town. The Vondeling vineyards run off the South-facing slopes of the Paardeberg Mountain where the decomposed granite soil, along with habitual afternoon South Westerly winds, give their wines a vibrancy in an otherwise warm climate area. The first vintage of Vondeling wines made from their own grapes was in 2005; there are now approximately 100 hectares of vineyard, mostly planted to Mediterranean varietals. The older vineyards, which include Sauvignon Blanc planted in 1983 and Chenin Blanc in 1986, have come into perfect balance over the years and provide some of Vondeling’s most valuable fruit which is turned into wines with a unique ‘fingerprint’ of origin from minimal intervention during the winemaking process.
