Taste- Patatsblanc has been compared to Chablis for its classy, clean, lean, dry style. Unlike Chablis, (and more like the Mosel or Clare Valley) the soils are slate: giving terrific texture, and a distinctive, 'mineral', perhaps even salty tang. There are hints of greengage on the nose, and the savoury palate texture leads into a balanced and lingering finish. This blend of Colombard and Chenin Blanc offers a fabulous expression of the Montagu's distinctive terroir within the Klein Karoo region.
