Vondeling, meaning ‘foundling’, lies on the slopes of the unspoilt and undiscovered Paardeberg mountain, approximately 45 minutes’ drive from Cape Town. It was granted to Swedish immigrant Oloff Bergh in 1704, and a three-centuries-old winemaking tradition began. Winemaker Matthew Copeland has been in charge since 2007 and he practises minimal intervention during the winemaking process ensures wines with a unique ‘fingerprint’ of origin.
Vondeling Baldrick Shiraz 2018
The wine has a deep purple colour with flashes of scarlet. The ripe plum and mulberry aromas are uplifted with violets, while infused with subtle cinnamon and white pepper. The palate is gentle and the tannins fresh but rounded. The aromatics continue into the palate with added blueberry, a hint of roasted black olives and sweet spice. A versatile, vibrant medium-bodied wine, it will enhance many a dish and occasion.
We recommend it with slow cooked lamb, freshly seared steak and mashed potato with caramelised onion gravy.
