Reyneke Chenin Blanc 2022

By , 7 November 2023

Grapes for this wine (price: R270 a bottle) come from the oldest vineyards on the Reyneke farm in Stellenbosch, two blocks planted in 1974 and 1976 respectively. Winemaking involved spontaneous fermentation in older 300-litre barrels and 2 500-litre foudre, maturation lasting 10 months.

On the nose, notes of pear, peach, maybe some citrus and a little earthiness. The palate shows good fruit concentration, round but not too full or sweet, the acidity bright, the finish having an ever so slightly bitter quality. Alc: 13.38%.

CE’s rating: 93/100.
