Wine made the traditional way is something special that honours our connection to the earth. Reyneke’s Syrah is certified biodynamic and organic and was made with minimal intervention - grown without any pesticides or herbicides using biodynamic methods, and foot-crushed and fermented the traditional way. A complex bouquet evokes notes of plum fruit and raspberry that wander off into subtler realms of violets, fynbos, fennel and spice. Your palate is touched with a youthful freshness of wild berries and peppery spice. Matured in oak barrels, this earth-friendly Syrah from Reyneke pairs well with grilled meats, olives, barbecues, grilled or roasted vegetables with bold sauces, and parmesan cheese.

Tasting notes

The Syrah undergoes a traditional style fermentation in concrete Nomblot tanks, incorporating 35% whole bunches which are foot-crushed. Spontaneous, natural fermentation occurs with minimal punch down and pump over’s. The wine spends 12 to 14 days on the skins before being racked into a combination of a 2500L Foudre and older French oak barrels for 13 months maturation.

Bouquet: Bright purple plum fruit and raspberry notes dominate the nose leading into subtle aromas of violets, fynbos and fennel spice adding to the complexity of this wine.  

Palate: The palate shows a vibrancy, youth and freshness.  Layers of wild berries and peppery spice linger on the palate with a fine chalky tannin structure which promises longevity.

Food pairing: grilled or barbecued meats, olives, barbecued, grilled or roasted vegetables, vegetarian dishes with bold sauces, mushroom risotto and parmesan cheese
