📝前Wine Advocate 主編 Neal Martin 對Reyneke 的評論：
Although I have visited Reyneke Wines a few times, strangely I had never met with proprietor Johan Reyneke, until now. Once we had navigated our way up to his farmhouse, we enjoyed a lively chat on all sorts of matters both vinous and non-vinous related. There is a bit of a hippy philosophy at Reyneke that is clearly inspired by Johan and underpins their biodynamic tenets. That seems to extend to the entire farm. When I arrived he spoke to one of his locals with whom together they have started an organic vegetable enterprise. With winemaker Rudiger Gretschel they are a bit like Batman and Robin, espousing their biodynamic practices in a region that has been hidebound to traditionally and not always environmentally beneficial practices in the past. Their wines demonstrate the care they take, not infallible wines, rather honest and personality-driven wines that are distinctive, as much cerebral as sensory experiences. The big news is that the estate is finally being expanded and they had literally just signed on the acquisition of the neighboring farm that Johan has had his eye on for a while and indeed, has been farming himself for the last couple of years. So expect some expansion at Reyneke, although as Rudiger mentioned driving back: one step at a time and the outlay in securing the new land will probably stymie any investments in the near future. Still, what matters are the wines and there is plenty to enjoy. Their Syrah and Reserve White are outstanding and I was intrigued by the Reyneke Raw, a quasi-natural wine that looks very promising (although I expressed my dislike of the name and suggested something that does not imply a winemaking regime or allied to the ever-political arena of natural wines). So it may eventually be renamed and I will let readers know in my next report.
