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.
A spicy full bodied red wine, with white pepper undertones. Slight French oak gives this wine a soft tannin structure with smooth mouth feel. Combining dark berry fruit with spicy richness makes this wine a drinking pleasure. Able to age for five years.
5 way Bordeaux Blend with a splash of Shiraz. This dry full-bodied red wine is a fusion of black currant and spice with a hint of chocolate with sweet tobacco and fynbos on the nose.
This dry, full-bodied white is matured for 12 months in new 300 litre French oak barrels. It is characterised by tangy citrus fruits softened by undertones of vanilla and a nutty complexity. Awarded four stars in the John Platter Wine Guide, this is a big wine for special occasions.
A light, crisp, dry wine that is fruit driven and juicy. Unwooded and refreshing with lovely guava and melon flavours rounded off with a hint of freshly cut grass and pear undertones.
