Reyneke Biodynamic Sauvignon Blanc 2018
The Reyneke Sauvignon Blanc is a vibrant, biodynamic white wine made from organic grapes grown on the Reyneke farm located in the Stellenbosch wine region of South Africa. Once at the winery the grapes are whole bunch pressed before natural fermentation occurs in 3rd fill and older French barrique. A small component of the wine is fermented in stainless steel tank. The wine is then aged for six months on the gross lees before being racked from barrel and tank and prepared for bottling. The wine is bursting with lime notes, Granny Smith apple, some white peach and passion fruit and hints of black current to the nose. The palate shows a lovely brightness and definite flinty notes. The wine reveals multiple layers as it opens up and shows great complexity, with a long lingering finish. A harmonious wine in all senses and one which will develop over several years.
