Voor Paardeberg

Voor Paardeberg is a small wine grape-growing area in the Western Cape region of South Africa. A ward within the Paarl district, it is situated 15 kilometers north of the town of Paarl bordering the Swartland region. It is one of the newest additions to the nation's Wine of Origin (WO) scheme, which it joined in 2006. The hot, dry growing conditions here are perfect for the Shiraz grape variety. A Rhône-like style of winemaking is employed, creating complex, hefty wines with a balance between fruit and spice characters.
The vineyards of Voor Paardeberg stretch up the south-eastern slopes of the Paardeberg inselberg, a rocky outcrop of granite about 35km inland from the Atlantic Ocean. While the area is hot and dry, the influence of the western coast and the prevailing southerly winds mean temperatures here are on average 5 degrees cooler than Paarl in the summer months.
