Discover More About Our Products

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. Today, an environmentally sensitive approach to farming and minimal intervention during the winemaking process ensure wine with a distinct fingerprint of origin.

Vondeling Chardonnay 2019 is a full-bodied and refined South African white wine which is exceptionally well-suited to grilled fish, creamy Alfredo pasta and salads. The freshness of the wine also makes it ideal for mild, aromatic curries.

4 /5

Vondeling Chardonnay has a bright hue with a golden straw colour. It displays a refreshing nose of bright pear and peach blossoms with subtle lemon meringue and notes of freshly rolled oats. A full-bodied wine with great palate tension. Crisp apple and chalky citrus are infused with mild layers of Crème Brulé, spun sugar and floral potpourri.

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.

Food matches: Exceptionally well suited to grilled fish, creamy Alfredo pasta and salads. The freshness of the wine also makes it ideal for mild, aromatic curries.
