'Vuurberg White, as made by Donovan Rall, is always full-bodied, rich and ripe but the 2018 is particularly so. Consisting of 40% Chenin Blanc (Stellenbosch, Swartland), 21% Semillon (Franschhoek, Swartland), 11% Viognier (Stellenbosch), 10% Grenache Blanc, 10% Verdelho and 8% Roussanne (all from the Voor Paardeberg), the nose shows honeysuckle, yellow peach, orange, some leesy character plus a little spice. The palate is relatively thick textured but lively acidity prevents if from being overblown and the finish is deeply savoury.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100

'2018 as usual blends 6 varieties (chenin in the lead) from 3 regions. Wholebunch, natural ferment & maturation in oak, 10% new. Also as usual, it’s full-fruited, rich & ripe, with a velvet smoothness made livelier by a firm, balanced acidity.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (90/100)
