Description

Reyneke Organic Red

Reyneke Organic Red has complex aromas of dark fruit, a hint of meatiness and something more mineral/stony tannins pretty dry right now but there’s juicy fruit to compensate.

Reyneke Organic Red has a strong sense of authenticity, if that does not sound too pretentious, dry, firm tannins, refined, lithe and long without overweening power.

It would not be hard to finish the bottle.

The Reyneke label was created in 1998 when Johan Reyneke Jr. took over the farming activities from his mother and produced the first wines on the family farm, Uitzicht.

The 20ha farm faces the historic town of Stellenbosch and overlooks the surrounding mountain ranges and the beautiful False Bay.

Since inception, Johan has moved from farming conventionally to farming organically and finally to farming and producing his wines in accordance with biodynamic principles.

He is currently one of only a few winemakers in South Africa who produce biodynamic wines and is considered somewhat of a ground-breaker in this regard.

WE BELIEVE there’s a lot to be said for the way winemaking used to be.

There were no chemicals, no “technological advancements” that made the process a process, and natural balance was more important than balance sheets.

Some people dismiss it as old-fashioned nostalgia, but we like to think of it as ancient wisdom. And we embrace it as much as we can. Not just because it’s better for the earth, but because it makes for better wine.

THE REYNEKE VINEYARDS are herbicide, pesticide and fungicide free. Just like any organic vineyard should be.

Instead of spraying weeds with poison, we carefully select and grow companion plants amongst our vines to outcompete the weeds. http://www.reynekewines.co.za/pages/our_approach/in_the_vineyards.php

These companion plants have the ability to fix nitrogen from the atmosphere, help break up compacted soil or even harbour a beneficial insect or two.

While all sorts of poisons are usually used to combat pests, we simply release their natural predators, like ducks – there’s nothing more delicious for a duck than a good, juicy snail.

No poison leaching into the grapes. No expensive fertiliser because the ducks do that for us. Everyone’s happy.

The Black Shiraz is an extreme example of this style, deep colour, huge palate and high alcohol. This wine upholds the tradition with strong blackberry and plum aromas over toast, vanilla and spice. The palate is full flavoured and intense with rich blackberry, plum, blueberry and spicy characters. The tannins are very ripe and dense giving great structure and length to the palate.

Odfjell Armador Syrah 2018

Black with deep violet reflections. At first there are aromas of figs, redcurrants and ink offering a rich fruitiness to the wine. This is followed by scents of cloves, vanilla, smoked meat and a touch of toasted bread. In the mouth it is a big and full bodied wine; fresh, juicy with touches of strawberries and cherries, and a pleasant acidity on the finish.

A unique, idiosyncratic blend that delivers multiple layers of flavour. Shiraz brings fruit depth and structure, combining beautifully with the aromatics and spiciness of Grenache, Mourvedre adds wild earthy notes to the blend and complements the firm, savoury character of Tempranillo, to surround and soften the palate of this multi-dimensional wine.

Peter Lehmann Mentor Cabernet 2014

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality. Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.
