Raats Family Wines, Stellenbosch

Mavericks like Bruwer Raats are really forging ahead, producing wines with a real sense of provenance and style.

Having carved out a reputation as a New World leader in the production of Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Bruwer crafts soil specific wines that embody the unique characteristics of the Stellenbosch region - a truly distinctive showcase for South African wine and soil, with a consistency in quality that is unquestionable.

The 2011 Original Chenin Blanc epitomises the balance between power and elegance while the 2009 Family Chenin delivers a refined complexity with firm minerality.

The ├╝ber-elegant Family Cabernet Franc shows the stunning heights this varietal can attain, while the continued collaboration between Mzokhona Mvemve and Bruwer on their MR de Compostela exceeds even Bruwer's high expectations - this year being awarded a place in the top 100 South African wines.
