Vineyard: Made primarily from cold pressed Merlot, the vineyard selected for this wine is nearly 20yrs old. Located at the forefront of a spur jutting out of the Voor Paardeberg Mountain, the berries are well exposed to sunlight. Exposure to sunlight is essential to eliminate any green flavours from the grape.

The soil has a high clay percentage and this lends softness and volume to the wine. Great care is taken to ensure that the vines do not bear too great a crop or suffer from drought. This is done through green cropping of the vines and micro irrigation. Both practices help to preserve the natural acidity, freshness and vibrancy of the grape aromas.


All our grapes are picked at optimum ripeness in the early hours of the morning. The grapes are then destemmed and chilled before they are pressed. This short supply from vine to press ensures minimal degradation of the fruit aromas and a very moderate extraction of colour.
All free run juice is kept separate from the 'colour fraction' to ensure a deliciously subtle salmon colour. The juice is cold settled to remove any coarseness and fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks. The wine is 100% unoaked.

The wine is aged on its yeast lees for 6 months to allow it to fill out and gain complexity. The wine is relatively light in alcohol and calories.

Producer Information

Vondeling traces its origins back to 1704 when the land was first granted to Oloff Bergh, a Swedish immigrant, by Governor Van Der Stel. It is situated half way between Wellington and Paarl on the slopes of the Paardeberg Mountain and has breathtaking views of mountains and vineyards in all directions.

The farm was bought by Julian Johnsen, Anthony Ward and Richard Gower in 2002, at which point they embarked on a major reconstruction programme, which included extensive replanting and the installation of a state of the art winery. Since then the farm has expanded further with the purchase of the neighbouring Klein Vondeling farm and more recently St Clements, from South Arican golfer David Frost. The winery at St Clements has also been extensively renovated and expanded, with the addition of a tasting/function room and in 2013 the building of a church, for weddings and other events. The result is a stable of 12 different wines of which five have 4 or more stars from the Platter's South African wine Guide. They have also received excellent reviews from Robert Parker and numerous awards.
