Vondeling Petit Rouge

Vondeling Petit Rouge

Voor-Paardeberg, South Africa
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Wine Description:

An elegant fruit profile of cheeky cherries, subtle raspberry and spicy black pepper. All this is nicely supported by refined tannins and a soft finish.

Tasting Note:

A bright ruby red in colour, vibrant fruit filled aroma of sleek cherries, subtle raspberry and soft, black pepper.
On the palate the nose carries through beautifully to the palate and is nicely supported by refined tannins with a smooth finish.

Food Suggestion:

 A dynamic wine, which can be enjoyed at many levels, but is exceptionally well pared with a traditional South African braai. Alternatively Sunday roast is a must. We hope you enjoy it.

Producer Description

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’s flagship wines, Vondeling Babiana and Vondeling Monsonia, are named after rare species of fynbos that are endemic to the Paardeberg mountain, the home of Vondeling Wines.
