About this Item

Biodynamic Syrah, 2012
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. 

Critics Ratings

‘Lovely fragrance on the 2012, with ripe berries and a touch of flowers and herbs. Very well balanced, with both generous sweet fruit and a savoury, vinous succulence, all supported by a sound structure, leading to a lingering dry finish. Only old oak used.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2015, 4.5*

‘Mouthwatering, with heft and cut to the range of raspberry ganache, espresso, plum paste and fig notes. A solid graphite spine holds the finish. Should unwind a bit more with time.’ - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 90/100 (Oct 2014)
