Whole bunch pressing, followed by open tank fermentation. Wine is then cold stabilised, fined and filtered before bottling.
Welcome to complex, ripe aromas of citrus and peach, backed up by the faintest sprinkling of fresh thyme and vanilla. The aromas introduce a palate altogether more complex, with rich, more-ish, juicy stone fruit, wrapped up in crunchy, refreshing, grapey acidity. Mouth-filling, delicious and succulent
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.
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.
