Raats MR de Compostella 2020

Product information "Raats MR de Compostella 2020"
The Raats MR de Compostella shines in an intense and dark ruby red in the glass. The blend of Cabernet Franc (30%), Cabernet Sauvignon (28%), Malbec (21%), Merlot (16%) and Petit Verdot (5%) is a very special red wine, because the grape varieties were each individually matured in oak for one year, then it was decided in a blind tasting how high their share in the blend should be. The result: a rich and complex red wine that pampers the connoisseur's senses with its fruity scent of blackcurrants and dark cherries. A hint of violets, cedar and cinnamon add a spicy component to the bouquet. On the palate, the Raats MR de Compostella delights with its harmoniously balanced character and notes of blackberries, which are surrounded by nuances of dark chocolate and mineral tones. The red wine is a pleasure on its own, but it is also an excellent accompaniment to dishes with dark meat or cheese.

Raats Family Wines - a family affair

Raats Family Wines is a family-run winery and is known above all for its exceptional wines of the Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc grape varieties. In 2000 Bruwer Raats founded the Raats winery in Stellenbosch together with his brother Jasper. Since then, the mission has been to create extraordinarily good South African wines and to establish them internationally. Today Raats is run by Bruwer Raats and his cousin. It has meanwhile developed into a top winery in the South African wine world and enjoys a high international reputation.

Raats wine highly praised by John Platter

The quality of the Raats Family wines also convinced wine critic John Platter. No less than five wines received the highest award in the John Platter Wine Guide 2018 and the Raats Winery achieved an unprecedented success. This achievement by the winemakers was rewarded with the title “Winery of the Year".

Raats Family Wines on the march

A very special creation is the flagship of the winery. The MR de Compostella is a red wine blend from the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc grape varieties and was developed by Bruwer Raats and his long-time friend Mzokono Mvemve. In addition, there has been an innovative range since 2014. The Raats BVintners wines are characterised by the special origin of their grapes. The winemaking team uses grapes purchased here that come from special regions and clearly show their origin in the wines. With these trend-setting creations, the Raats Family Wines winery is broadening its horizons and offering a comprehensive range with the right wine for every occasion.
