Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"The Chenin Blanc is harvested from a single vineyard on the Biodynamic farm Reyneke, located in the Polkadraai Hills to the west of Stellenbosch. The vineyards are the oldest on the farm being in excess of 44 years old and are located on a combination of decomposed granitic loam on a clay sub-soil. The grapes were whole bunch pressed before light settling and then fermented in a combination of 300l second-fill French oak barrels and a 2500l foudré. The wine was then aged on its lees for 10 months with a further one month aging in stainless steel tank before bottling.

This wine presents a bright straw hue with a lovely bouquet of fresh limes and citrus peel followed through by fruit sorbet floral undertones. The palate has a beautiful freshness with a tight linear structure. Layers of citrus fruit, washed stone and spice carries through to a long aromatic finish. This wine will drink best over the next two to six years."


92/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2014 Vintage)
"From 60-year-old vines that were purchased from their neighbour, the 2014 Chenin Blanc is half fermented in 2,500-litre foudres from a cooper in Alto-Adige and the rest is used barriques, only the latter going through malolactic. The nose is subtle and well-defined, very expressive of the grape variety with touches of fresh pear, dried orange peel and jasmine coming through. The palate is well balanced with good acidity and full of energy, thanks to the citric seam of fruit, fanning out gently with more tropical tones developing on the finish. This is a very fine Chenin Blanc."
