Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc

Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc

Regular price $31.99

Legend has it that it was an earlier Raats generation that brought the Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc vines to South Africa from the Loire Valley, France. Today, idealistic winemaker, Bruwer Raats, continues this legacy by focusing exclusively on these varietals. In early 2000, he began cajoling ancient vines on a two-hectare Stellenbosch farm. He cut back the crop to virtually uneconomic volumes, but the vines ripened vigorously. Today, these superb quality wines are a testament that the Raats family never let go of their idealism.

'Fresh, clean, vibrant and expressive, the 2022 Original Chenin Blanc expresses classic notes of peach and pineapple with apple skin, citrus blossom and candied lime. Medium-bodied, fresh and balanced, this delightful wine comes with a nimble and compact frame and an energetic and lively finish.' - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
