Tasting Notes

An intriguing, inviting blend of red summer fruits, spring fynbos flowers, Indian spice and just a hint of toasty oak on the nose. The palate is surprisingly decadent, rich, with almost creamy tannins. You’ll find raspberries, blackberries, ripe plum and a hint of pepper, spice and leather on the palate. It is balanced, with just the tiniest prod of refreshing, salty acid, like a playful poke of Neptune’s trident.

Bonfire Hill Extreme Vineyards Red Blend

Inspired by the diversity of our Winelands - especially our extreme soils and climate - and tied together by a love of nature, a good braai and a lekker kuier.  Bonfire Hill Extreme Vineyard wines are sourced from wind-ravaged dry-grown, old, uncommerical, battered, unnoticed, but brilliant vineyards in out of the way places, like Elim, the Overberg Highlands, the warm Swartland and the high slopes of the Piekernierskloof - as well as many others.
