The wine has a distinctive yellow apple and pineapple core, alongside notes of green melon and limes. The wine is thus bursting with fresh fruit flavors. The wine ends with zesty citrus flavors, and has a long mineral finish. The Raats Original Chenin Blanc 2015 is a classic example of a Chenin Blanc made from older vines, grown in very specific soil types.
Food pairing
An easy-to-pair wine since it has a wide flavour profile, but we especially recommend it with curry or similar spicy dishes as well as sushi and oysters.

Producer
Originally a partnership between brothers Bruwer and Jasper Raats, with their father Jasper Snr as viticulturist, Raats Family Wines was founded on a passion for Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Today it is award-winning winemaker and natural marketer Bruwer Raats that has acquired full ownership of the company, with father Jasper Snr retired. Bruwer spent time at esteemed Blaauwklippen, Delaire and Zorgvliet estates before his commitment to build the Raats Family brand full time. His intense and personal devotion has seen Raats Family Wines evolve into a New World leader in the production of these varietals, which many international critics consider benchmarks. A great deal of effort has gone into sourcing specific soil types and old low-yielding vineyards located in the Stellenbosch, Paarl, Durbanville Hills and the Paardeberg area. ”The best viticultural soil for Chenin Blanc in all the land is undoubtedly located in and around Stellenbosch. We source from vines on average 25 years old, grown 250m above sea level - perfect!” All grapes are handpicked and wines made with his extensive knowledge and attention to detail. The result is a truly distinctive showcase for South African wine and soil. Bruwer travels to the US and Europe each year to visit top restaurants and loyal customers, and believes that personal relationships with the sellers of his wines are vital. ”Because our wines should essentially be enjoyed in the company of good food by people appreciative of the passion and dedication that go into the making thereof.” All the efforts have paid off. Raats Family Wines are enjoyed in the UK, USA, Canada and Europe and his wines are consistently rated tops by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Decanter, Wine & Spirits, Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate magazines, etc.
