Reyneke Organic Chenin Blanc 2020

Notes of quince, pear and yellow apple are apparent on the nose, with notes of star fruit and sweet pineapple. The palate is fresh and vibrant, showing flavours of lemon zest and apple. The wine has well integrated acid, a very good structure, core and a nice long finish.

The Chenin Blanc grapes are sourced from beautiful and organic vineyards situated 32km inland from the Atlantic Ocean, on the valley floor of a hot and semi-arid region. The vines are planted in loamy soils, which adds a great flavour profile to the Chenin Blanc grapes. The grapes are bunch sorted and destemmed and naturally fermented in stainless steel. After 6 months further ageing on the lees, the assemblage is made up and bottled.

The Estate
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.
