Vuurgberg Reserve Red '16

Stellenbosch

Vuurgberg Reserve Red '16

If any region in South Africa has gained traction towards a broader audience, it's Stellenbosch.  As South Africa continues to find its identity from region to region, Stellenbosch has proved to be an excellent source of terroir for Bordeaux varietals, creating identity and the makings of what we bet will eventually be seen as classic. The Vuurberg "Reserve" Red is 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Petit Verdot and 7% Cinsault.  The wine is sleek, as it sees 22 months in oak, 50% being new French oak.  Grown in rich clay soil, perfectly suitable for maintaining a more elegant structure that is cohesive and rounds out the edges of this seductive wine, where there is dark, fresh fruit, leather, violets and bold spices.  

This winery is led by another favorite of ours, winemaker Donovan Rall (perhaps you've had wines with his namesake on the label that focuses on Rhône varietals).  Rall is an award-winning winemaker who uses organic techniques and minimal intervention, with a classic hand in the winery.  We love that we get him two-ways between his two wineries.
