This wine, classic in style, was grown and produced on the hsitoric meerlust Estate which has been owned by the Myburgh family for eight generations. It will complement fine food and benefit from further ageing.
Vondeling, meaning "foundling", was originally granted to Swedish Immigrant Olaf Bergh in 1704. Ecologically sensitive farming practices and a minimalist approach in the wine making process ensure our wines epress the uniwque terroir of the Voor Paardeberg.
A refreshing wine with exotic rose petals, pomegranate and tropical fruit on the nose with lovely freshness and vibrancy on the palate.
This Chenin Blanc and Pinotage blend was made using grapes harvested from 20-year old bush vines grown in the premium wine producing area of Stellenbosch. The light yellow colour is perfected by taking the Pinotage juice of the skins as soon as it is crushed and blending it with the Chenin Blanc. The wine has fresh fruit flavours from the Pinotage and floral aromas from the Chenin Blanc, which ensures a clean, crisp mouth feel with a good acidity. An ideal drink in the summer and best served chilled with seafood and salads.
This Chardonnay was blended from a selection of the best wines from the ultra-ripe harvest. From the start, our aim was to produce a Chardonnay with intense fruit flavour and real character utilising quality grapes.
All fruit was harvested in the early hours and the juice pressed while the grapes were still cool to help retain aroma and flavour. The wine was tank fermented with an element of quercus fragmentus which added greater weight and complexity.
The wine shows classic ripe, rich butter and tropical fruit on the nose and soft, well integrated vanilla on the palate.
