A delicious white wine from the Ron Burgundy crew which includes young gun Reenen Borman.
As Greg Sherwood so aptyly described the wine:
The Patatsblanc 2015 is a 90% Colombard and 10% Chenin Blanc blend but is not a second wine to the Patatsfontein Chenin Blanc. It’s a serious effort in its own right and shows fine floral notes of white blossoms, orange peel, crunchy white peaches, and a faint complexing hint of stem ginger. In its youth, it’s braizenly tight and linear with peppery pithy yellow fruits, dusty gravel minerality and fine fresh acidity. Being under screw cap surely intensifies its taughtness. As it develops in the glass, a few more honied, yellow stone fruits develop coming from the Chenin Blanc component. The texture remains elegantly tightly coiled and slightly glassy as it slips down the throat. This wine is very juicy and moreish and I can see it blossoming into something even more complex and intriguing with perhaps another year or two in bottle. Drink now or comfortably over 5+ years.

The nose is a complex, both earthy and bright, showing lemon peel, ripe stone fruits and ripe apple. The palate is taught and slightly saline, with very good concentration and depth. The wine has a fine form, without excess bulk. Finish is very long, with a noticeable interplay of saline/sweet/tart...

Fresh, vibrant, perfumed Sauvignon blanc, filled-out and enriched with a carefully judged unwooded Chardonnay component, make this a beautifully balanced and highly versatile wine. More than two decades of family experience have gone into this unique blend

This blend provides some mid palate intensity, with orange blossoms to the nose.The greatest feature of the wine is the freshness on the palate, its good length and balance, with the pure tropical taste. It is fermented to dryness, but has intense fruit flavour of melon, litchi and granadilla.
