Vuurberg White 2018
By Christian Eedes, 26 February 2021
Vuurberg White, as made by Donovan Rall, is always full-bodied, rich and ripe but the 2018 is particularly so. Consisting of 40% Chenin Blanc (Stellenbosch, Swartland), 21% Semillon (Franschhoek, Swartland), 11% Viognier (Stellenbosch), 10% Grenache Blanc, 10% Verdelho and 8% Roussanne (all from the Voor Paardeberg), the nose shows honeysuckle, yellow peach, orange, some leesy character plus a little spice. The palate is relatively thick textured but lively acidity prevents if from being overblown and the finish is deeply savoury. Price: R220 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 91/100.
