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 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
