Patatsblanc, the white blend as made by Reenen Borman from Montagu grapes as a companion wine to the acclaimed Patatsfontein Chenin Blanc, started out as predominantly Colombard with just a dash of Chenin Blanc but the current-release 2018 sees the two components almost equal, Colombard at 52% and Chenin at 48%.
It makes for a more substantial wine that’s full of personality. The nose shows a floral top note before pear, peach, apple and citrus with a hint of reduction in the background while the palate has good weight and texture, the acidity is nicely coated and the finish gently savoury. Price: R175 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 91/100.
