Revealed: Why 2013's Veritas white wine of the year will steal your heart
After 300 years of winemaking, Vondeling is a prolific winery. The reason? It's received many awards for its wines at some of the most prestigious ceremonies on earth. In fact, in 2013 alone, Vondeling swooped in and scooped up a trio of gold medals! At the Michelangelo Wine Awards, its Cabernet 2011 won a gold medal. Then, at the prestigious Six Nations Wine Challenge held in Australia, its 2012 Baldrick Shiraz also won a gold medal. But there's an even more exceptional wine from the winery we'd like to tell you about today… It'll blow your mind and steal your heart…
The white wine of the year and Vondeling’s darling
The Veritas Awards is South Africa's oldest wine competition.
Only wines of exceptional quality stand a chance of winning a Veritas Award.
And at the 2013 Veritas Awards, Vondeling wowed wine connoisseurs with its Vondeling Sauvignon Blanc 2013!
It won none less than a GOLD medal! And was crowned Veritas’ white wine of the year.
The Vondeling Sauvignon Blanc 2013—the taste of excellence
There are plenty. But some believe it’s because the wine is so perfectly put together.
You see, this pale straw-coloured white wine has a refined nose of citrus, passion fruit, fig and a hint of capsicum freshness.
These aromas carry through to a firm, fruity palate with a mild acidic zing, some flintiness and the lingering taste of guava.
And that makes it the perfect wine to enjoy a chilled glass with some freshly steamed seasonal asparagus. Or fresh bread, camembert and berry jam.
The Vondeling Sauvignon Blanc 2013 is also the perfect take-along for an afternoon spent lounging on a picnic blanket beneath a leafy oak tree.
