Notes

The latest 2017 release shows Reenen Borman’s accomplished hand and ever-increasing skill. As he gets to know this vineyard, his astute winemaking and keen aesthetic elevates his 2017's refinement.

It is certainly worth getting to know this terroir by enjoying this early-drinking, approachable Patatsblanc 2017. Like the Steen, this Colombard-based blend is produced from vineyards grown on Karoo slate. These unique soils add a fine spiciness and fynbos-like character to the Patatsblanc as well as a distinct saline finish to both the Patatsfontein wines. Raised in top-end Stockinger barrels, the 2017 is more focused with a fresher acidity and is just astounding at this price.

Tasting notes:
'A blend of 66% old vine Colombard and 34% Chenin Blanc. Produced from various parcels and matured in large Stockinger Austrian oak. This wine very much speaks of its terroir with a delicious fruit weight that follows through to a textured and saline palate.' – James Pietersen (March 2018)
