‘Grapes from 0.6ha block planted in 2009. 60% matured in concrete egg, 40% in new oak. A top note of honeysuckle before yellow apple, stone fruit, earth, spice and a yeasty note. Rich and broad on the palate with well-integrated acidity and a pithy finish. Layered and long, a wine that captures the imagination. Alc: 13%.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100

'Contemplative, uniquely from rare 'Montpellier' clone, evokes delight. From understatedly insistent aromas to extraordinarily long finish, a subtle, unfolding complexity. Texture silky, balance unquestionable, confident delicacy triumphant. Wholebunch natural ferment, 11 months in concrete 'egg' (65%) or oak, 10% new. Long future but gorgeous in youth.' – Platter's Guide, 4* (94/100)

'The wine’s inviting nose displays lime, green apple, with white peach and pineapple. Here subtle spices of ginger, angelica and white pepper are entwined with florals of peach blossom and honeysuckle. The palate shows further fruit depth with quince, kumquat, mandarin orange and pear, against a backdrop of steely minerals. Hints of roasted hazelnuts and almonds add to the complexity of the palate. The wine is exceptionally linear and fresh with a fine texture and finishes with notes of fennel and the ginger spiciness promised by the nose.' – Winemaker

Producer information Bruwer Raats founded Raats Family Wines in 2000, and since then has narrowed his focus on Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, with only one blend, The Jasper Red blend. He believed that specialising would lead to success, and this belief was not unfounded, as today, Raats Family Wines is regarded as a leader of South African Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Raats has received consistent local and international accolades and was named Winery of the Year for the 2018 Platter’s Guide with 5 out of 6 wines achieving five-star ratings. As Neal Martin says, 'Cabernet Franc does not get better than at Raats'.
