Total Production: 1,760 bottles

Drink: Now to 2026+

 

 

The Kottabos series is a project of exploration in the Stellenbosch hills, to showcase what this unique terroir has to offer.

 

Very charming red cherry fruit and a light hand on the winemaking tiller. Interestingly light, dry and stony - as though a few shards had been macerated. Transparent in several senses. Very appetising.  Drink; 2017 – 2021

A first release from Reenen Borman, this blend of Grenache with 13% Syrah comes entirely from the Polkadraai Hills and shows the charm of the former variety. Floral and spicy, with flavours of summer pudding and tangerine, subtle wood and Mediterranean herbs. 2018-25

Another micro-vinification offering from the beautiful hills of Stellenbosch. In the glass, this wine has the alluring colour of young red Burgundy and shows a crystalline, translucent ruby glow. The nose offers up incredible perfume lift of cherry bon bons, blood oranges, rose petals, parma violets, pomegranate and subtle cedary, boxwood, marzipan spice. Notes of black pepper and earthy bramble berry sappy spice develop with time in the glass. The palate is very fine boned, precise, and light on its feet with an almost Pinot Noir elegance and finesse, framed beautifully by crunchy, sappy, tart cranberry acids and subtle, fine powdery tannins. The wine is so effortless, brimming full of energy, and really shows off Reenen Borman’s extensive winemaking expertise. Drink this wine now or over 3 to 8 years as it develops more forest floor and savoury bramble berry spice nuances.

‘A new-wave Grenache Syrah blend that also happens to be entirely Stellenbosch. A captivating nose of pomegranate, candy floss, earth and spice while the palate is light and fresh yet very flavourful, the tannins fine and supple. Super stuff!’
