Raats Family Wines are specialists in the crafting of exceptional wines from Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc.
It is their mission to consistently produce Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc of outstanding quality from South Africa and to establish these wines as international benchmarks.
The Raats family lives for and dreams about these two varieties and passionately produces wines they believe are truly distinct from old vineyards in the Stellenbosch area east of Cape Town. They have earned a reputation internationally as a New World leader in the production of Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc.
he 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 2017 is a classic example of a Chenin Blanc made from older vines, grown in very specific soil types. Now in its 17th year of production, the consistency in quality is unquestionable.
