'The duration of skin contact was extended on this Chenin Blanc to showcase its textural qualities,' reads the back label of the Kottabos 2020 as made by Boschkloof’s Reenen Borman, juice left to settle for 24 hours after pressing. This extra maceration works well. The wine is amber in colour and the aromatics are deep for such a young wine – naartjie, orange, potpourri and ginger. The palate, meanwhile, is very flavourful with some nice grip to the finish. It’s immensely drinkable rather than rustic or rough.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 91/100

'Ripe stone fruit, spice and some granite reduction. Beautifully balanced. Great ageing potential.' – Reenen Borman, Winemaker

Producer information Reenen Borman of Boschkloof is a rock star Stellenbosch winemaker whose star keeps on rising. We believe he has been making some of the most exciting wines in South Africa. The name ‘Kottabos’ refers to a drinking game played in ancient Greece. The Kottabos label gives Reenen more freedom in expressing himself in these wines, which are made from vineyards in the Polkadraai area.
