A certified organic white wine from Stellenbosch farmed under biodynamic principles, this beauty has garnered awards and praise across the globe. Reyneke scooped the top three awards at Wine Magazine’s Nedbank Organic Wine Competition last November and garnered 4.5 stars in the current Platter Guide. Winemaker Johan Reyneke is South Africa’s biodynamic pioneer and an avid surfer too; his ethical approach and respect for the soil has made waves worldwide. Complex flavours of ruby grapefruit and stone fruit with an underlying note of lime. The richness and depth of the palate is tightly held together by the finely structured minerality which is the backbone of this Sauvignon Blanc. 16 months in oak (80% new) adds finesse. This wine was made to last and will be enjoyed for many years to come. Enjoy this wine chilled well with vitello tonnato, lightly-fried stuffed courgette blossoms, braaied crayfish with smoked salt infused butter or maple glazed salmon and baby organic vegetables.
