About this Item

Reserve Red, 2010
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Perched overlooking Stellenbosch and False Bay with a history dating back to 1863, Reyneke is the family farm of Johan Reyneke and one of the original organic farms registered in the Cape. Previously known as Uitzicht, meaning the view, Reyneke’s passionate concern for the well-being of their estate and land is matched by brilliance of winemaker Rudiger Gretschel. Reyneke has quickly become of the one leading Biodymanic wineries in the world. 
This 2010 was championed by British wine journalist Jamie Goode, singling it out as one of the best SA wines he has tasted awarding it 96 points.

Critics Ratings

'2010 a remarkable, interesting wine – a spine-tingling blend of syrah/shiraz (whose pure-fruited flavours dominate) with 40% cab to enrich the superb tannic structure & add to the emerging complexity. Freshness & lightness belie 14.5% alcohol. Almost irrestibly compelling now, but will develop.'– Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2014, 4.5*

'The 2010 Reserve Red is 60% Syrah and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon - an increase in the Bordeaux variety. The Syrah is foot-crushed whole-cluster with destemmed fruit on top, the Cabernet matured in new barrel and the Syrah in second-fill. The floral elements of the Syrah dominate the bouquet that is very well defined – so much so that you would presuppose there was no Cabernet blended. The palate is very well balanced with a killer line of acidity that cuts through the structured fruit, the Cabernet cedar notes belatedly coming through on the finish. Superb.' – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate 93/100 (2014)
