Notes

Due to limited availability, only 6 bottles per person.

'With the release of the 2016 vintage of Patatsfontein Chenin Blanc made from Montagu fruit by Reenen Borman of Boschkloof, this wine is now established as one of the very best examples of the variety in the country – the maiden vintage 2014 was impressive enough as was the 2015 but Borman says quality improvements are coming quickly as he gets to know the vineyard better.

Winemaking for the 2016 involved spontaneous fermentation before maturation lasting 10 months in barrels of various sizes, none new. A detailed and captivating nose of fynbos, potpourri, naartjie, kumquat and peach while the palate is incredibly dense and full flavoured but not weighty. Great structure, composure and length without being at all forced, it makes a huge impression.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za 96/100
