Reyneke Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2019
By Christian Eedes, 24 February 2023
The Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2019 from Stellenbosch biodynamic producer Reyneke is only the fourth release, the previous 2017 placing in the Top 10 of our 2020 category report sponsored by Prescient with a rating of 94.
Matured for 20 months in 100% new oak, the 2019 is again a compelling wine. Heady aromatics of cassis, black olive, earth, potpourri and incense while the palate has dense fruit matched by snappy acidity and grippy tannins, the finish very dry. It’s massively flavourful and shows plenty of grunt despite a relatively modest alcohol of 13.5%. Price: R1 070 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 93/100.
