'Four picks from two vineyards. Montagu slate soil. 100% whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented in barrels and cement. Aged for 10 months on its primary lees without any batonage. No fining. Hints of peach with a mineral edge. Lively acid. Long textured finish.' – Patatsfontein

Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'Colombard and Chenin Blanc from neighbouring vineyards supply the fruit for this near equal cuvée of these two complementary white grapes. Waxy, savoury and showing some tannic grip, this is a scented, stony, herbal white that over delivers at its price point. Drink 2021-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'Just a little more colombard than chenin on 2019 blend, as 2018 (4 stars, 88 pts). Fresh & expressive, with forthright flavour & beautifully balanced grippy acidity. Fine advertisement for an underrated, usually simply fruity variety. Lightly oaked; 13% alcohol.'– Platter's Guide, 4.5* (90/100)

Producer information Patatsfontein is a winemaking venture formed by Reenen Borman of Boschkloof, fund manager Henk Kotze and Fritz Schoon – ‘Master’ baker of Schoon De Companje in Stellenbosch. Reenen's accomplished hand and ever-increasing skills are especially impressive considering his young age. He's possibly our finest new-generation winemaker at present and his latest releases are just epic! Their 2014 Steen was Tim Atkin's White Wine Discovery of the Year and changed the status quo of what can be achieved in a region essentially known for sweet Muscadel.
