Vondeling Monsonia 2017

(Shiraz 50%, Mourvédre 30%, Carignan 11% & Grenache 9%)

Vondeling Monsonia is named in honour of Monsonia Speciosa, a species of fynbos (vegetation type occurring in the Western Cape region of South Africa) that is endemic to the Paardeberg mountain, the home of Vondeling wines.

A vibrant and clear charcoal red with beautifully viscous legs clinging to the glass. Each grape component vies for attention in this kaleidoscopic bouquet. Sweet lillies and rose-petal Turkish delight from the Grenache. Plush black currant and blueberries from the carignan. All wrapped in a velvety blanket of red berries and soft spice from the Shiraz. A smooth, velvety palate devoid of harsh or grippy tannin. Red cherry candy and sweet plumb at the fore with a soft plush center and subtle spice with roasted coconut at the end. Well paired with a mature steak, barbequed over a hotbed of coals and served with sauteed baby mushrooms, or try a hearty, slow-cooked pork belly with root vegetable and tomatoes.
