Reyneke was the first farm in South Africa to achieve certification by Demeter International, the largest and the most widely acknowledged biodynamic accreditation body in the world. Chenin – or Steen as it is called in South Africa, has long been the high-volume workhorse of the South African wine industry, despite the aggressive invasion of chardonnay and cabernet in the 1990's. Johan Reyneke, philosophy graduate, surfer dude and champion of biodynamics, is among the new guard of producers achieving new heights with this historic Loire variety. "Vinehugger" is aged for six months, mostly in stainless steel tanks (20% oak barrels). Pairs well with vegetable dishes or salads, rich fish or chicken dishes and can stand up to your favorite stinky cheese.
