Vuurberg (pronounced ‘Feer-berg’, 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 Franschhoek. Bought by Dutchman Sebastiaan Klaassen in 2000, the estate produces just two wines, a red and a white.

The white is a blend of Chenin Blanc 39%, Viognier 15%, Semillon 15%, Verdelho 12%, Rousanne 8%, Grenche Blanc 7% and Chardonnay 2% mountain fruit! Sourced from estate vineyards in Stellenbosch with some Swartland fruit grown on decomposed granite, gravel and some clay. The grapes are picked as early as possible and rushed to the cellar where depending on the varietal they are either crushed and destemmed or transferred directly into a tiny manually operated basket press to be process whole bunch. All varietals are fermented wild and matured in a combination of French barrique and 400 litre barrels( 25% new). Full malolactic fermentation takes place and then the juice is blended after 9 months on the fermentation lees without stirring. The wine undergoes a coarse filtration during bottling.

Vuurberg White is positively packed with rich, fresh stone fruit, white spice with a good dimension of oak, making it a refreshing but textured white.
