Farming like the world depends on it – Reyneke’s magnificent 2017s
Reyneke’s magnificent 2017s
Farming like the world depends on it
Sustainability is set to become the most important fine wine trend in the coming decade. There’s been a huge swing towards producing wines with the least impact on our already fragile environment. It takes commitment and time and no other producer in SA has shown more commitment or put in more time than Reyneke.
The Reserve Red and White are impressive trailblazers – not only as biodynamic wines but as wines that highlight the incredible potential of Polkadraai, Stellenbosch. The highly-rated 2017 Reserve Red (Syrah) and 2017 Reserve White (Sauvignon Blanc) are fine and charactered wines, capturing the purity that established organic and biodynamic vineyards offer.
Reyneke not only aims to be sustainable, but also self-sufficient. Twenty years of biodynamic farming has created the perfect balance between vine and environment, culminating in their finest releases to date. Watch the video below to find out more.
In the future it will be an expectation that the only way in which to produce great wines is to farm sustainably. This is already evident if you look to the world’s finest wine appellations.
Besides their stellar reserve wines, Reyneke also has a biodynamic range which offers spectacular value! The Reyneke Syrah is a long-time Wine Cellar favourite. The Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc, both from the stunning 2019 white vintage, showcase wonderful refinement and purity. And the 2017 Cornerstone, a Cabernet-based, Bordeaux blend, offers particular value with a rich core of fruit.
Want to have your sustainable wine on a daily basis? Reyneke also producers a range of 4 organic wines for everyday drinking. These are produced from organically grown fruit, sourced from various vineyards across the Cape. We are biased towards the 2019 Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon as it is seriously good! As well as the 2020 Chenin Blanc which is fresh and pithy with good fruit density. See our ‘pick & mix’ selections below and build a pack to suit your tastes.
