Raats Cabernet Franc

Double take: 95 and 96-point benchmarks

The 2019 Raats Dolomite Cabernet Franc is a stunning release! 'This is a brilliant Cabernet Franc,' enthuses Neal Martin, while Tim Atkin MW says, 'it's a Cape version of a Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil.' The Raats team come together as the undisputed Kings of Cabernet Franc in SA, and their high standards and focus on quality trickle down to this 'second' wine, leading to extraordinary value!

The Dolomite Cabernet Franc has built a solid reputation on its quality; with previous vintages having received a Platter's 5-star rating as well as having placed in the Top 5 of Winemag's Alternative Varieties Report. The quality of the 2019's elegant tannins together with its perfume and finesse, are typical of the finest examples of Cabernet Franc. As pioneers and champions of the variety, Raats has raised the bar yet again.

The Raats Family Cabernet Franc is SA's most lauded Cabernet Franc. The latest 2019 release is called a 'Cape benchmark' in the Platter's Guide (96/100), and has 'beguiling purity' according to Neal Martin. Sumptuous, yet elegant and svelte, it is long and detailed with refined tannins that linger on and on. This has decades of evolution ahead.

Both Raats Cabernet Frans offer immense value and are the finest iterations of this noble variety in SA
