''We've gone more focused' says Nuschka de Vos of this complex, amphora, foudre and old wood-aged Chenin, inspired by the wines of Vouvray. Beeswax, lanolin and fennel aromas lead into a palate with good texture and structure and a pithy, mouth-watering finish. Drink 2022-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 94/100

'Quince & apricot typicity on 2020 from old vines. Non-interventionist vinification & 10 months on lees in barrel & foudre, further 6 in bottle. Thrilling harmony of acid freshness & creamy lees fantail. Modest 12% alcohol, like 2019 (4 stars, 89 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (92/100)

'The 2020 Chenin Blanc Biodynamic has a fresh bouquet of beeswax, jasmine and light mirabelle aromas. The palate is well balanced, taut and fresh, with a fine bead of acidity. A delicate lemongrass and ginger note enhances the finish. Vivacious and tensile, this Chenin Blanc should repay cellaring. Drink 2024-2044.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 92/100 (Nov 2021)

'This wine has beautiful aromas of lemon, orange blossom and pear with just a hint of yellow apple and stone fruit coming through on the nose. The palate is layered with a fresh and vibrant acidity. This wine has an incredible depth to it and is complex with a lingering finish.' – 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.
