Reyneke 'Vinehugger' Red 2017

Reyneke 'Vinehugger' Red 2017 terrific value, a blend of 89% Shiraz and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon - made from organic grapes

Tasting Notes

A blend of 89% Syrah and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, respectively, from bio-dynamically farmed grapes. This has a captivating nose of pepper, herbs and a perfumed note of violets with a touch of leather and earth supported vibrant red fruit at its core, red currant, plum and raspberry, aromatically. The vibrancy and freshness of wine’s aromatics carries over into the palate. Medium bodied, the juicy red fruit flavors pick up some perfume, with lighter, finer grained tannins giving structure and just the right amount of grip, while an underpinning of acidity carries this to a dry, savory finish. This is an impressive value and should show well over the next 2-3 years quite easily.

Food Accompaniments

Grilled sausage, mushroom pizza, pasata with a red tomato sauce

Winemaker Notes

The nose has a distinct freshly ground black pepper character, along with black current, thyme and tobacco aromas. There is also a light perfume of violets on the nose. The palate is well balanced and structured, with juicy fresh tannins and a dry finish. Distinct notes of red fruit, cassis and plum on the palate, all add to this complex and enjoyable wine. The limited oak contact makes this red wine smooth and approachable right now. Drink now, until 2020.
