Critic Reviews
94 points, Tim Atkin MW
“This biodynamically farmed Chenin Blanc is part of the Old Vine Project and comes from two adjacent sites planted in the 1970s. With aromas of white flowers, saffron and candle wax, this is a wonderfully complex, well balanced white with leesy complexity understated wood. 2020-26”

17.5 points, Jancis Robinson MW
“Superb aromatic intensity – a voluminous nose of ripe apple, nutty oak and fresh earth, with a hint of marzipan. Powerful palate, with layers of crisp apple and white peach, driving through the long, creamy finish.”
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.
