'Expressive & complex, 2019 upholds stellar standard, with finely layered tropical fruit rounded out by 50% older-barrel-matured component. Precise, poised & elegant, defining varietal potential. Worthy successor to 2018.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'In what Bruwer Raats rightly describes as a "very good vintage for whites", this excellent wooded Chenin Blanc has come up trumps. Combining fruit from sandstone and granite soils over three parcels, with 50% of the resulting wine seeing oak, it has aromas of white flowers and a honeyed, peachy palate underpinned by stony minerality. Drink 2020-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'The wine offers a complex nose showing quince, white peach and yellow apple, with fenugreek spices give more dimension alongside the mineral intensity of the wine. The stone fruit character follows through onto an exceptionally balanced, very delicate and fine textured palate showing a peach-melba character with an exquisite length and freshness. The wine lingers with hints of ripe nectarine and apricot, zesty lemon and wet chalk.' – 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'.
