The Cape Doctor will see you now

Tastes like: Vibrant. Pineapple. Melon. Orange blossom. Minerality. Light bodied.

This is a terrific South African white blend; light bodied, fresh, fruity and with an underlying complexity.

This is, in part, thanks to the old vine Chenin Blanc in the mix which adds structure and intrigue to the younger and intensely aromatic Viognier and Chardonnay blocks.

But it’s also the cooling ocean winds - known as the Cape Doctor - and high granite slopes, which ensure the grapes ripen more slowly throughout the growing season – so despite the heat of the African growing season there’s still loads of vibrant acidity and freshness to the wine.

Vondeling are working their way up the food chain when it comes to sustainability too, farming with an environmental conscience and converting to solar power to reduce their carbon footprint.

And multi-award-winning winemaker Matthew Copeland employees a lower intervention to give the juice a real sense of its terroir.
