Reyneke Biodynamic Chenin Blanc 2022

The holy grail of winemaking is to produce a wine which is unique to its terroir - a wine that honestly reflects the soil, prevailing climate and method of cultivation. The Biodynamic range is exactly this: wines with a true Reyneke identity. The oldest vineyards on the Reyneke farm are two blocks of Chenin Blanc from 1974 and 1976 respectively. These vineyards are registered with South Africa’s Old Vine Project (OVP). The grapes were whole bunch pressed and lightly settled. Natural fermentation occurred in a combination of 2nd fill French barrique as well as 2500L foudrés. After 10 months of maturation on the gross lees, the wine was racked from their vessels and readied for bottling early in January. A small amount of sulphur was added prior to bottling only. This wine has beautiful aromas of lemon, orange blossom and pear with just a hint of yellow apple and stone fruit coming through on the nose. The palate is layered with a fresh and vibrant acidity. This wine has an incredible depth to it and is complex with a lingering finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
