Reyneke, Biodynamic Chenin Blanc 2019 Bottle size: 750mlSouth Africa, Stellenbosch
'Part of a superb line up of white wines from Reyneke in 2019, this hails from two old-vine blocks planted in the mid-1970s. Textured, saline and perfumed, with notes of wild flowers and honey, a hint of old wood spice and a textured, salty finish. Effortlessly complex. Drink 2020-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100
'The 2019 vintage of the Chenin Blanc (Certified Heritage Vineyards – Planted 1976) from the Stellenbosch biodynamic grower Reyneke seems slightly attenuated compared to the excellent 2018. The nose is currently very primary but still rather pretty showing pear, citrus, peach and guava with herbs and flowers in the background while the palate is light and lean with racy acidity and a saline finish. Very good but slightly less complex and intense than the preceding year.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100
'Upfront floral and white peach notes, with hints of pear and grapefruit on the nose. Notes of honey and melon start to become more apparent later on, in the glass.The palate is fresh and vibrant, with an almost saline feel on the tongue. The finish is long, well balanced and rounded.' – Nuschka de Vos, Winemaker

|Producer information||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.|
