REYNEKE RESERVE RED 2017

A wonderfully perfumed nose with hints of blackcurrant, cherries, white pepper and thyme. The palate is intense, with layers of flavour. Fynbos, spice, black cherries and pepper notes complement each other in this regard. Ultimately this wine is fresh, elegant and has loads of finesse which compliments its complexity and depth. 100% Syrah.
