Established in 1838, Reynella is the birthplace of South Australia’s internationally renowned wine industry and home to the state’s oldest operating cellar. John Reynell was one of South Australia’s earliest colonists. In 1838 he arrived from England aboard the Surrey and vintaged the first Reynella wine only four years later. Thus began a winemaking tradition that was to span three generations. Today, the historic Reynella winery is an impressive reminder of the family's pioneering spirit and wine.

Intense deep garnet in colour with a soft crimson red rim, the nose exhibits aromas of cassis and musk, ripe black plum flesh, camphor oil and black olive that are complemented by fine French oak and cinnamon spice. Fine primary fruits are mirrored on the palate with terrific drive and poise; tannins resonate in the backbone of this wine with a seductive mid weight carrying an impressively long driven wine.

94 Points - Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front

Deep, dark colour with a faint tinge of purple remaining, and a stately bouquet of cedar, cigarbox, deep-set dark berry and dried-herb characters, adding up to a wine of complexity, power, drive and profound depths. The tannins are emphatic, mouth-coating and supple, all pointing towards a cabernet with great cellaring potential, although it's a hugely rewarding drink today as well. Date Tasted: 21st January 2024; Drink: 2024 to 2041; Price: $73.00; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 96 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review

Small parcels were basket-pressed from one vineyard to provide 95% of the wine, the remainder open-fermented, all basket-pressed into French barriques for 14 months maturation. The wine is a richly textured and structured carpet of blackcurrant fruit, cabernet tannins dancing a jig at every point along the way to the finish. Oak makes a contribution, but it is the least of the three pillars. Drink to: 2041; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 95 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion

Long and firm, with dark plums, olives, cedar and small berries over drying, chalky tannins and mineral notes. Drink: to 2036 - 2046; Rating: 95 Points; Jeremy Oliver; Australian Wine Annual
