Reyneke Wines

Established in 1998 Stellenbosch, Reyneke Estate is one of South Africa's very few certified Biodynamic wine farms. Winemaker and founder, Johan Reyneke Jr has become somewhat of an authority on the subject. Herbicide, pesticide and fungicide free, coupled with no artificial additives in the cellar has meant that this non-intervention approach has created wines which are true to their origin and character.
The nose presents a layered complexity and a freshness of white stone fruit, pear and lime peel, opening up to subtle floral notes. The wine has a textured minerality on the palate, together with a firm acidity and well integrated oak. A very elegant and balanced wine, with potential to drink from now until 2020.
Ideal as an accompaniment to white meats including chicken, pork chop and turkey. Try also with fish, Sea Bass, Perch, Sole, Haddock, Trout, Cod, Redfish, Halibut, Snapper, Mussels, Crab, Lobster, and Clams.
Grapes are sourced from a single vineyard on the Reyneke Uitzicht Farm. The grapes are whole bunch pressed and undergo spontaneous, wild fermentation and ageing in 90% new 300l French oak casks. The wine is further aged for 9 months in oak on the lees before it is racked into foudres. The wine then spends a further 2 months in foudre, and a further 3 months in stainless steel, prior to bottling.
