Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) The wine has a distinctive yellow apple and pineapple core, alongside notes of green melon and limes. The wine is thus bursting with fresh fruit flavours. The wine ends with zesty citrus flavours, and has a long mineral finish. The Raats Original Chenin Blanc 2014 is a classic example of a Chenin Blanc made from older vines, grown in very specific soil types. Now in its 14th year of production, the consistency in quality is unquestionable.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Honeyed pear / butterscotch and citrus flavours complemented by a firm minerality and spicy edge. Sourced from old vines from three vineyards. Characterised by their complex soils. Rich, intense, yet elegant and delicate on the palate. Profound wine that changes perspective.
