Vondeling Wines are in the Voor-Paardeberg; a Western Cape wine region that has all the charm of an undiscovered country landscape. Their vineyards run off the South-facing slopes of the Paardeberg Mountain. The decomposed granite soil, along with habitual afternoon South Westerly winds, give their wines a vibrancy in an otherwise warm climate area.
The wine is impressively opaque in colour with dark hues of purple and red. An intense blackberry and cherry bouquet is sensuously interlaced with sweet cloves and subtle vanilla oak. The bold fruit and subtle spice aromatics persist on the palate with additional undertones of roasted almonds and trimmed cigar. The palate is broad and rich with soft acidity and abundant, finely textured tannin. This is a luxurious and full flavoured modern wine.
Serve with marinaded beef kebabs and a fresh garden salad.
