VUURBERG (pronounced FEER-berg and translated to ‘Fire Mountain’) is a tiny garage-style winery nestled next door to Zorgvliet on the Helshoogte Pass that winds round the eastern face of the Simonsberg Mountain between Stellenbosch and Franschoek, Bought by Dutchman Sebastiaan Klaassen in 2000, the estate produces just two wines, a red and a white. These delightfully delicate wines are made by the very clever and über-talented winemaker Donovan Rall, who worked with Miles Mossop at Tokara and Eben Sadie before striking out on his own. Only very small quantities are produced but already the wines are getting rave reviews across the Cape and sit on the more interesting, less-predictable wine lists of the best contemporary Cape eateries. Donovan is very much amongst the current crop of young Cape winemakers being closely followed by the UK press.

Still young but huge and muscular and surprisingly elegant given its depth of dark brooding fruit. An intriguing nose of wild berries, graphite and other crunchy stuff which follows through onto a palate with layers of graphite, rosemary, rocks and countless other things! The Petit Verdot complements the characteristics of the other varietals creating a wine that has lots of cassis and spicy, leather notes and a firm tannin structure with the potential to evolve beautifully over the next 10 years. After decanting the wine evolves beautifully showing notes of crushed-rock minerality amongst the restrained layered and complex fruit.
