'Jasper benefited from all the MR de Compostella fruit in 2019, as there was no release of the latter wine. Cabernet Franc-led, with 40% Malbec, Petit Verdot and Merlot, it's a youthful, intense red with no new wood but plenty of backbone. Plum and cassis flavours are supported by layers of oak, tannins and acidity. Drink 2023-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 93/100

'House’s Bordeaux blend, still cab franc-led, 2019 shows more power than varietal siblings. Showy & generous, with iodine & earth-laced cassis, dense fruit centre. 16 months in seasoned oak.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (92/100)

'The 2019 Red Blend Jasper has an intense nose of black cherries, boysenberry, cassis and iodine; tobacco notes emerge with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, taut and fresh, with grainy tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a harmonious finish. This slips down the throat with ease, and with change from $20, you can have no complaints apart from not having bought another bottle. Drink 2022-2030.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 90/100 (Nov 2021)

'Exceptionally intense and complex on the nose with blackberry, black cherry and bramble in abundance and subtle hints of forest floor, dark chocolate, aniseed and spicy tobacco. The walk in the Black Forest continues with blue and blackberry dancing on a tight rope with focus and concentration, following through onto a perfectly balanced, fine-grained, velvety palate. The finish lingers with hints of fresh mint, cinnamon and perfume. Complex and structured.' – Bruwer Raats, 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'.
