About this Item

Reserve Red, 2008
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

‘Exceptional 2008 mostly shiraz, 10% cab adding backbone. Nose charms with lilies, white pepper & coriander spice. Plush & poised palate has fresh acid zip, with well melded grape tannins for long, sophisticated end. Judicious 20 mths Fr oak, 80% new, similar to 2007 (4.5 stars), also from shiraz, with 35% cab.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 5*

‘A blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon with 25% whole bunch ferments crushed by foot, aged in 225-casks with 80% new oak for 22 months, the 2008 Reserve Red has an engaging bouquet that is so fresh and vibrant. Red berries soar from the glass with beautifully integrated, barely noticeable oak. The palate is full-bodied with very fine, edgy seamless tannins with a gentle grip on the dark berry, slightly gamey finish. Drinking beautifully now, this should age well for several years.’ – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 94/100 (Aug 2011)
