Reenen Borman Wines
Rumor of an exquisite one-half hectare block of Old-Vine Chenin Blanc in the Keisie Valley of Montagu, South Africa drove winemaker Reenen Borman, and two friends, Fritz Schoon, and Henk Kotze, to find out what all the hype was about. The vineyard is a registered single-vineyard named after longtime caretaker Jakob. Jakob’s Blok, as it is affectionately known, is a 30 year old vineyard planted on east facing Karoo slate and shale soils and it immediately captured the hearts of the three friends.
After the maiden vintage of Patatsfontein, Reenen has since created two other wines, the Patatsblanc and Sons of Sugarland.
