The wine

The Bonfire Hill wines aim to showcase some of South Africa's most extreme vineyard climates from hot dry farmed, old vine parcels in Paarl and Swartland through to cooler, wetter and winder in the Overberg. Fortunately for us as wine lovers these marginal climates often produce incredible quality fruit (and wines). Bruce Jack has years of experience in working with growers across the Cape and these wines offer him the chance to support some amazing farmers working hard to deliver sustainble viticulture in testing conditions, year-in, year-out. 

The finished blend varies year on year but the aim is consistent - to produce delicious approachable wines that combine great concentration of fruit with freshness and structure. Some portions of the wine see some oak aging to help add some backbone and strucutre to the finished wine but it is never allowed to dominate. This is an amazing value wine that will get you out that Aussie Shiraz/Mendoza Malbec Rut.
