Notes

A delicious blend of 88% old vine Colombard and 12% Chenin, the 2016 release of the Montagu Patatsblanc follows on from the ‘smashable’ 2015. Walking a tight rope of fruit-weight and freshness, the 2016 offers more substance, length and refinement. As with the Steen above, this is even better than the remarkable 2015.

'Patatsblanc arose when Reenen Borman, the winemaker behind the celebrated Chenin Blanc from Patatsfontein in Montagu, decided that some of the Colombard on the property was too good to pass up and so devised a Colombard-Chenin Blanc blend intended to be accessible but not facile.

The 2016, consisting of 88% Colombard and 12% Chenin Blanc, has just been released. A subtle and elusive nose of citrus, peach and dried herbs while the palate displays lovely fruit purity, zippy acidity and a pithy finish. Perhaps a tad less pretty and ephemeral than the maiden 2015 but still very likeable.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za 90/100
