For the first time since working with this site, Reenen felt the Colombard should stand on its own. The intensity of the 2020 vintage coupled with intense vineyard work has resulted in a terroir-driven wine that in many ways transforms this variety.

This true destination vineyard in Montagu has become somewhat of a cult sensation by those in the know and while quantities are very small, one 600L barrel for this vintage, the ‘Doortjie’ appears to be the next wine in the stable of great single-vineyard offerings. The wine is named after the Dutch word for ‘door’ as this block is the first one after you enter into the vineyard.

This wine shows subtle aromatics of pear, peach skin, a salty mineral tone and a subtle aroma of wet earth. The palate has a tea note that definitely highlights the complexity of this often maligned grape.
