Reyneke

About Reyneke

Johan Reyneke began his winemaking journey as a labourer in small vineyards owned by his neighbours in Stellenbosch. As the vineyards were too small to sustain a profitable business, Johan was allowed to take over the vineyards and, after combining with those owned by his parents, he started selling grapes to wineries and eventually progressed to making his own wines.

 

Right off the bat, he embraced organic and biodynamic farming practices, a move that has yielded handsome dividends. He was ahead of the curve, and he is now credited as the pioneer of the organic and biodynamic winemaking movement in South Africa. According to The Biodynamic and Organic Wines of South Africa, Reyneke is one out of only 2 South African producers who possess both organic and biodynamic certification today. Making elegant, classic wines, their Syrahs could pass for Cornas. Whatever wine Johann Reyneke makes, however, they come with an undeniably South African spirit; energy and life that is truly thrilling.

Reyneke Chenin Blanc 2019 (6x75cl)

Vinous (95)

The 2019 Chenin Blanc Biodynamic comes from two blocks that comprise the oldest vines on the estate. Matured in foudres and used barrels, like its Sauvignon counterpart, it sports a very subtle reduction on the nose that lends it edginess and complexity. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Wonderful mineral tones come through toward the long, fresh, saline finish. This cries out for oysters. A brilliant Chenin Blanc.

Reyneke Reserve Red 2017 (6x75cl)

Tim Atkin MW (97)

After 20 harvests in South Africa, Rudiger Gretschel regards 2017 as the best vintage he's ever experienced. The quality of this world class Syrah would appear to bear him out. Dense, chewy and complex, it's a Cape Cornas, with dark, brooding damson and blackberry fruit, notes of tapenade and rosemary, subtle oak and a finish that lingers on the palate for a minute. 2022-32

Reyneke Reserve White 2018 (6x75cl)

Tim Atkin (96)

A welcome relief from the blandness of many commercial Sauvignon Blancs, this is an ambitious, dynamically farmed white from the brilliant team at Reyneke. Sappy, reductive and nettley, with a flinty note that's reminiscent of a great Pouilly-Fumé and a long, saline finish. 2020-24

Reyneke Syrah 2018 (6x75cl)

Vinous (95)

The 2018 Syrah Biodynamic was hand-sorted before being transferred into Nomblot concrete tanks for alcoholic fermentation, where 30% of the grapes are left whole bunch, the berries on stalks crushed to avoid carbonic fermentation at the bottom of the tank. The remaining 70% of grapes are destemmed. The wine takes two or three minutes to find its groove, then offers detailed blackberry, raspberry preserve, clove and wild fennel aromas, hints of bilberry jam emerging with continued aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, saturated tannins and plenty of dusky black fruit mixed with garam masala and bay leaf. Beautifully defined on the finish. Stunning.
