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.
