    Chenin Blanc 2016, Reyneke

    100 % Chenin Blanc høstet i hånden og presset uden afstilkning. Druerne komme fra farmens ældste vinmark plantet for over 40 år siden. gæret på hhv brugte barriques og store foudres og efterfølgende lagret 10 måneder på gæringsbundfaldet for større kompleksitet og så en måned efter racking. Fremstillet og flasket uden brug af CO2.

    Karakter af citrusskal og ingefær i duften med noter af limeblad og bivoks. God fylde og fast syre med en del mineralitet og flot længde i eftersmagen.

    Formidabel madvin, der klarer ret komplekse retter med fisk, hummer, kylling og ikke mindst oste.

    Biodynamik fra Sydafrika: "kvalitet med integritet"

    Reyneke er den første biodynamisk certificerede vingård i Sydafrika. Reyneke-familien købte farmen i 1988 og kort tid efter begyndte Johan Reyneke omstillingen til først økologi og siden biodynamik. Reyneke opnåede Demeter-certificering i 2007 og var i mange år den eneste vingård i Sydafrika med biodynamisk certificering. Reyneke er "ægte" biodynamikere på den måde, at farmen fungerer som en selvforsynende enhed med bl.a. kvæg til at lave gødning, ænder til at spise snegle i marken  Læs mere

    The maiden 2016 Reyneke Raw (a working title incidentally, although for reasons I will not explain here I hope they baptize it with another name) comes from a parcel of Chenin Blanc, around 70 years old behind Johan Reyneke's house. Recently they purchased the adjacent vineyard that also contains Chenin Blanc that is around 38 years old. Because 2016 was a tough year in terms of drought, whereby they only yielded three barrels from 4.5 hectares of vine, they have utilized fruit from this newly procured holding. Apparently the pH was 2.9 with a potential alcohol of 13%. It is fermented in barriques with no bâtonnage. "It was so stable that I did not use any SO2, so essentially it is my first natural wine," Johan says. It has a clean and pure bouquet with lemon thyme, orange blossom with hints of nectarine and star fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with quince and dried honey on the entry, that acidity very conspicuous, yet the wine is very well balanced with a long and lightly spiced finish. This has huge potential. Seriously good (whether it is natural or not). - Neal Martin

    From 60-year-old vines that were purchased from their neighbor, the 2014 Chenin Blanc is half fermented in 2,500-liter 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. - Neal Martin

    Some juice and even a little ginger beer. - Jancis Robinson MW
