Critic Reviews
93 points, Wine Spectator
“A dark, brooding Cabernet, offering layers of warmed fig paste, dark currant preserves and smoldering tobacco, backed by a broad swath of plush, cocoa-dusted structure. Has enough acidity inlaid though the finish to carry it off. A big wine. Best from 2019 through 2029.”
About The Winery
In 1988, the Reyneke family bought the farm Uitzicht, a 90-acre farm on the ridge of the Polkadraai Hills, with spectacular views of Stellenbosch. Contemporaneously, Johan Reyneke began the lengthy process of the conversion from conventional farming to organic practices to a method of farming which was in accordance with biodynamic principles. Reyneke was the first farm in South Africa to achieve certification by Demeter International, the largest, and arguably, the most widely acknowledged biodynamic accreditation body in the world.

The farm produces several ranges of wines including Reserve, Biodynamic, Organic, and Vinehugger. They also produce a red blend named The Capstone with the proceeds of the wine helping the farm workers and their families.
