Patatsfontein Wit Versnit 2022
By Christian Eedes, 17 April 2023
The excellent Patatsfontien Chenin Blanc as made by Reenen Borman from Montagu grapes (see review of 2022 here) has always had a sibling wine in the form of Patatsblanc, to be called Patatsfontein Wit Versnit henceforth.
Consisting of approximately 68% Colombar from 30-year-old vineyards and 32% from 16-year-old Chenin Blanc vineyards, the 2022 was matured for 10 months in a combination of barrel and concrete. Pear, peach, citrus and fynbos on the nose while the palate has great clarity and linearity – light-bodied with bright acidity and a nicely pithy finish (alc: 12.5%). Price: R215 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 92/100.
