Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2022

Product information "Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2022"
The grapes used for the Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc come from 40-year-old vines and deliver a complex white wine that tantalises the senses with its fruity aroma of quince, yellow apples and peaches. Spicy and mineral tones perfectly round off the bouquet. On the palate, notes of stone fruit and peach are particularly noticeable, surrounded by hints of nectarines, apricots and lemons. It is especially the incredibly fine texture and its balance that make the Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc so exceptional. This is why the white wine, half of which was matured for eleven months in French oak, is a culinary highlight on its own. But you should also try the wine with fish, seafood or a mild curry.

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.
