Vondeling 2015 Chardonnay achieves 90 point score in the UK based wine journal Decanter.


The exceptional 2015 Chardonnay from Vondeling shone amongst its SA counterparts in the April 2017 issue of UK wine journal Decanter. Out of 120 South African Chardonnays tasted, 7 were deemed “Outstanding” with scores of between 95 and 97 points, and 47 judged as “Highly Recommended” with scores of 90 -95.


Leading UK based wine judges, Tim Atkin (MW), Greg Sherwood (MW) and John Hoskins (MW) assessed the wines.


The 2015 Vondeling Chardonnay is described as “slightly reduced nose moves onto a refreshing stony palate complete with honeysuckle and melon sweetness. Gentle and elegant with a herby mineral edge, this will improve and evolve over a year or two. Drink 2017-2020 Alc 14%”.

The SA Wine Classification and SA Cellar Classification – updated annually since 2004 – are based on the top ratings and awards from experts in the world’s most respected forums for the assessment of wine quality and interest value where South Africa has a significant presence.

This involves reviews by panels of judges who conduct their assessments in a ‘blind tasting’ environment, i.e. with the names of the wines and their producers withheld so as not to influence the jury either positively or negatively in terms of brand perceptions or price tags.

The Classifications take into account ratings and awards from both South African and international rating panels such as Platter’s South African Wine Guide, Six Nations Wine Challenge – Australia, Veritas Awards – South Africa and International Wine Challenge – United Kingdom.
