    Product description

    This 40 hectares estate and award winning winery has been producing wine for over 300 years. Bowwood 2016 is only the third vintage of Pinotage made at Vondeling yet it ranked in the Absa Top 10 Pinotage awards, alongside some of the wine industry’s most long-standing and distinguished names in Pinotage.

    Intense blackberry and cherry bouquet interlaced with sweet cloves and subtle vanilla oak. The wine is sensuous, with bold fruit and subtle spice aromatics persisting on the palate, with undertones of roasted almond and cigar. Tannins are finely textured, the palate broad and rich complemented by soft acidity – a luxurious, full-flavoured and modern expression of Pinotage.

  • About the producer

    About the producer: Vondeling

    This estate is located around the highest peak of the Paardeberg where there is one the Cape’s original Signal Cannons, which was once used to communicate to farmers that a ship had arrived in Cape Town’s Table Bay Harbour. Today, Julian Johnsen, Anthony Ward, and Richard Gower own this historic 40 hectare farm which has a three century old wine making tradition and ideal terroir. South-facing slopes, decomposed granite soil and long afternoon south westerly winds give their wines wonderful vibrancy and character.

    Multi award winning winemaker Matthew Copeland constantly searches to improve his wines. He likes to experiment with skin ferments and extended macerations whilst practising minimal intervention to retain freshness and natural characteristics. The wines are firm favourite in the Voor-Paardeberg region of Paarl. View our selection.
