Extreme Vineyards, Bonfire Hill Red

An intriguing, inviting blend of Shiraz, Cinsault & Pinotage from the different estates of the aptly named Extreme Vineyards. Red summer fruits, spice and just a hint of toasty oak on the nose. The palate is decadent, rich, with almost creamy tannins. You’ll find raspberries, blackberries, ripe plum and a hint of pepper, spice and leather on the palate.

Why Extreme? The Drift Estate in Overberg Highlands, where it is very cold in Winter and cool in Summer, vineyards are perched perilously on the slopes of Akkedisberg, pounded by wind. Slow growing and low yield. The Leeuwenkuil Family Vineyards, where it is very hot and arid.

Fermentation in stainless steel tank, with a cold soak for 2 days, the fermentation lasted 4 to 5 days at 25°C. Malolactic fermentation and some aging in stainless steel tanks, the rest in oak. Cinsault is unoaked and Pinotage and Shiraz was aged in 70% French and 30% American oak.
