Vuurberg ‘Reserve’ 2018


Made by Donovan Rall.

45% Cabernet Sauvignon /42% Petit Verdot/13% cinsault

Cabernet Sauvignon from Vuurberg and also some Helderberg in this vintage. Petit Verdot from Vuurberg and Bottelary Hills. Cinsault from Swartland.

All vineyards on either clay or granite soils. Everything except the cinsault spends at least 3 weeks on the skins. Cinsault was aged in concrete. The rest spent 20 months in seasoned 225l French oak. Bottled unfined and very roughly filtered with no fining etc.

Production by Donovan Rall is small and the wines are unapologetically bold without being overly heroic. Blending different cultivars from different areas, partnered with judicious use of new oak, gives the wines complexity and a sense of luxuriousness, both on the nose and on the palate. Importantly, Donovan manages to create balanced wines, even at the fuller-bodied end of the spectrum. Very classy multi-regional wines in the best tradition of the “new” world.
