Cellar for up to 10 years. No need to decant before serving. Reyneke is a family-run organic winery in South Africa which takes its commitment to the environment very seriously, even down to the ducks who fertilise their vineyards. The winery was founded in 1998 when Johan Reyneke took over the running of the family farm and decided to start making his own wines. The property is well-placed for premium winemaking thanks to its location facing the historic town of Stellenbosch with great views of stunning False Bay and the nearby mountains. To ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in perfect condition they are carefully harvested by hand and then 30% of the fruit is crushed by foot in whole bunches in concrete tanks. The remaining 70% is destemmed before being fermented. The wine is then transferred to large French oak casks for 16 months of ageing before bottling. This careful and attentive approach to winemaking allows the beauty of the fruit and the terroir to shine through, with luscious notes of cassis, blackberry and ripe cherry dominating on the nose. The first sip reveals a generous full body, firm tannins and a long finish which ends with intense dark fruit, tobacco leaf and spice. The bold flavour profile makes this a great wine to pair with hearty dishes like meat stews, tomato-based pasta dishes, or a ribeye steak.
