Vuurberg Wine Estate

Wine by Donovan Rall

Vuurberg Wine Estate is situated in Stellenbosch on the slopes of the Simonsberg around the best wine estates in South Africa such as Thelema, Delaire, Tokara and Zorgvliet. Great effort has been made by a young team to develop 7 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc on steep slopes, 600 metres above sea level.

Donovan Rall has been winemaker at Stellenbosch winery Vuurberg since 2010 and has been quietly refining the wines since his arrival there. If the white blend under his own label is Swartland with a little bit of Stellenbosch, then that under the Vuurberg label is Stellenbosch with a little bit of Swartland – the 2013 being a blend of some 40% Chenin Blanc, the rest Semillon, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Verdelho.
