Bonfire Hill White 2021

Bonfire Hill White 2021

Welcome to complex, ripe aromas of citrus and peach, backed up by the faintest sprinkling of fresh thyme and vanilla. The aromas introduce a palate altogether more complex, with rich, more-ish, juicy stone fruit, wrapped up in crunchy, refreshing, grapey acidity. Mouth-filling, delicious and succulent.

All around the far-flung edges of South African vineyards are special blocks of vineyards that disappear into massive blends of often mediocre quality. The Bonfire Hill range of wines is all about plucking these vineyards from obscurity and allowing them to sing.
