Raats MR de Compostella 2021

Product information "Raats MR de Compostella 2021"
The Raats MR de Compostella is made from five of the best red grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon (35%), Cabernet Franc (26%), Merlot (20%), Malbec (17%) and Petit Verdot (2%). The proportions of the grape varieties were decided in a blind tasting and the result is a blend that impresses across the board - starting with its dark ruby red colour. The nose reveals wonderful aromas of blackcurrants and cherries, enveloped by notes of violets, cedar and cinnamon. On the palate, the red wine is above all rich and complex, with flavours of blackberries and dark chocolate on the finish. The name "de Compostella", which means "the composition of the stars", indicates that not only have the best grape varieties come together in this red wine, but also points to a harmonious, consistent and linear flavour profile. On its own, this red wine is a real treat for the palate, but it is also highly recommended with dark meat or cheese dishes.

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.
