Notes

'Reenen Borman of Boschkloof, seemingly uncontainable when it comes to new winemaking ventures, has just released the follow-up 2017 to this maiden Kottabos 2016, the name referring to an ancient Greek drinking game, the wine (2016) consisting of 87% Grenache and 13% Syrah from the Polkadraai area of Stellenbosch.

'78% Grenache, 22% Syrah. Matured for 10 months in older oak. A subtle but compelling nose of red and black fruit, fynbos, white pepper and a little earth. A nice fleshiness about the wine on entry to go with fresh acidity and grippy tannins, the two varieties combining well to provide both drinkability and complexity.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za 94/00
