Reyneke Reserve Red

British wine journalist Jamie Goode has championed the 2010 vintage of Reyneke Reserve Red, singling it out as one of the best South African wines he has tasted. A blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon from Stellenbosch, the 2009 Reserve Red was described by the Wine Advocate as ‘world class’  and Jamie awards the 2010 a whopping 96 points.

Tasting note:
Amazing fresh ripe red fruits nose with pepper spice and a hint of olive. Lovely supple, sweet red fruits palate with some black cherry richness and delicious peppery vitality. There’s real freshness and complexity here, with precision and firm fine-grained tannins providing substantial structure. Warm climate finesse. This is a superb wine that should age very nicely, but if you don’t mind a bit of structure it’s beautiful now. 96/100

The 2010 is available from Wine Cellar for R299. Send your order to Roland@winecellar.co.za or view our full Reyneke price list on Winecellar.co.za.
