Raats, Dolomite Cabernet Franc 750ml 2017South Africa, Stellenbosch
Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc. That’s it. Since 2000, founder Bruwer Raats has kept his focus on these two varieties, believing that specialising would lead to success. This belief was not unfounded, as today, Raats Family Wines is regarded as a leader of South Africa’s Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, receiving consistent local and international accolades.
'95% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec. Matured for 14 months in older French oak. A youthful, somewhat shy nose showing red fruit, some herbal undertones and earth. The palate is relatively medium bodied with fresh acidity and fine tannins. Well balanced and understated.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag Alternative Varieties Report 2019, 92/100
'The nose shows dark and red cherry. Dark berries, spiciness and herbs linger on the palate. The wine has great purity of fruit with a hint of wet-stone minerality and a velvet soft finish.' – Bruwer Raats & Gavin Bruwer Slabbert, Winemakers
