In 1988, the Reyneke family bought the farm Uitzicht, a 35 ha farm on the ridge of the Polkadraai Hills, with spectacular views of Stellenbosch. Contemporaneously, Johan Reyneke began the lengthy process of the conversion from conventional farming to organic practices to a method of farming which was in accordance with biodynamic principles. On January 1, 2007, Reyneke wines was certified by Debio (Norway) and IFOAM (Europe). Reyneke was the first farm in South Africa to achieve certification by Demeter International, the largest, and arguably, the most widely acknowledged biodynamic accreditation body in the world.
The nose is rich with clove and white pepper spice with underlying deep red cherry fruit aromas. The use of the submerged cap ferment has resulted in a wine which has soft silky tannins making this wine very approachable in its youth. The palate shows a lively red berry freshness with some good structure and a well rounded finish.
