The 2015 Reserve Red consists of 100% Syrah. The fermentation involved 35% whole clusters, crushed by foot in concrete fermentation tanks and the remaining grapes were bunch selected and destemmed over the crushed whole clusters. Spontaneous fermentation occurs with minimal punch downs and pump overs. The wine is pressed into 2nd fill French barrique to for secondary fermentation. Elevage is for a total of 22months in oak with a single rack and return after 16months.
Reyneke, with their biodynamic approach, is one of 5 Stellenbosch properties to get First Growth status in Tim Atkin’s 2017 SA Report. No wine in their range epitomises their honest winemaking more than the Reyneke Syrah 2015.
‘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. Their Syrah and Reserve White are outstanding.’ – Neal Martin, 93/100
‘This field blend of Syrah wouldn’t look out of place in the northern Rhône.’ – Tim Atkin MW, 94/100
