Vondeling in Paardeberg is the pride and joy of English-born Julian Johnsen. In the 1990s, he came to South Africa to work a vintage at a relative's wine estate and never wanted to leave. He bought Vondeling in 2001 and right from the start, aimed for the top, engaging the award-winning winemaker Matthew Copeland. Babiana is their flagship white, many times awarded Platter's top 5-Stars. Named after Babiana noctiflora, a tiny, rare flower unique to the Paardeberg mountain, it's a luscious style, using grapes from old vines for added intensity. Wild yeasts, with the Chenin Blanc whole-bunch barrel fermented, the rest destemmed and all lees-aged for 12 months, it's a glorious rich and expansive mouthful. Enjoy with creamy chicken or fish.
