Raats Original Chenin Blanc is a fruity Chenin with great weight and texture made by leading winemaker Bruwer Raats. Tropical fruits of pineapple with zesty citrus and a long mineral finish.

Bruwer Raats is a gentle giant of a man and his reputation is starting to match his stature. His mastery of chenin blanc and cabernet franc is bringing him praise from around the world as "the most exciting and foward thinking winemaker" in Stellenbosch. As part of the new wave of South African winemakers he crafts soil specific wines that embody the unique characteristics of the region. With hand harvesting, whole bunch pressing and using natural fermentation without fining or filtering it helps him create wines that are world class.

Raats Original Chenin Blanc is produced from vineyards with an average age of 35 years. Grapes grown from the two soil types are fermented separately, the decomposed granite bringing a lime and mineral character, while the sandstone more topical fruit and structure.
