Tasting notes:
'Bruwer Raats uses a combination of wood and stainless steel components on this old vine Chenin, made with grapes from sandstone and granite soils. It’s a modern, taut, focused style with subtle nutmeg spice and a long, appley finish.' Tim Atkin South African Report 2017

Production:
Soil specific grapes vineyards being both vertical hedge as well as bush vines. Grapes are sourced from three vineyards in Stellenbosch. Average age of the vineyard is 40 years and older. Soil from natural combination of Decomposed Dolomite Granite and Table Mountain Sandstone. 50% of the wine was fermented and matured in 300 litre French oak barrels to accentuate the soft, luscious flavours; 50% fermented in stainless steel to contribute a crisp acidity and bright citrus flavours. After 9 months, the two components are blended together and left on the lees for a further 2 months before bottling. Fermentation temperature: 18° - 22° C.
