Reyneke, Biodynamic Sauvignon Blanc 750ml 2019South Africa, Stellenbosch
'A notch below the stunning Reserve White, but this is still a beautiful white in which you can taste the family resemblance. Tangy, fresh and mouth-wateringly crisp, it has plenty of extract and concentration, a touch of oak spice and notes of pink grapefruit and wet stones. Drink 2020-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100
'Matured for seven months in older oak. Dramatic aromatics of blackcurrant, white peach, asparagus and fennel plus some leesy character while the palate shows super-dense fruit matched by tangy acidity. It’s flavour-packed and quite particular.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100
'This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc bursts with notes of grapefruit, passion fruit and displays a distinct flintiness. The palate shows a lovely brightness and definite minerality, which reveals more complexity in time.' – Nuschka de Vos, Winemaker

Reyneke is one of 5 Stellenbosch properties to get First Growth status in Tim Atkin’s 2017 SA Report. Reyneke farm began in 1863 when it was then named ‘Uitzicht’, meaning ‘view’. It is located overlooking Stellenbosch and False Bay with north, south and east facing slopes. Reyneke is certified organic and biodynamic and follows sustainable practices in everything they do. ‘Their wines demonstrate the care they take, not infallible wines, rather honest and personality-driven wines that are distinctive, as much cerebral as sensory experiences,’ says Neal Martin.
