    Raats

    About Raats

    Bruwer Raats is the gentle giant winemaking genius who has forged a new path for Chenin Blanc in South Africa’s foremost vinous region, Stellenbosch. Founded in 2000 with a dedicated focus on terroir-specific expressions of Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Raats Family was one of the first producers in the country to bottle single-varietal wine.

     

    No easy feat, to pioneer a new style of wine when the vast majority of one’s peers are achieving tremendous success with blends. The confidence of Raats to make wine his own way and label it under his own name is a testament to the extraordinary quality of his fruit, and his cuvées have garnered him substantial critical acclaim – thoroughly well-deserved.

     

    Nearly twenty years later, Raats Family is one of the most sought-after and consistently exciting producers in the country which has (arguably) the single most exciting fine wine scene in the world. Very much at the forefront of South Africa’s wave of avant-garde and highly driven young winemakers, Bruwer Raats is hyper-focused on terroir expression – one can afford to be with such stunning terroir to express!

     

    Viniculture

    The Eden “High Density” Chenin Blanc is sourced from a single vineyard in the Polkadraai appellation of Stellenbosch. Ancient, decomposed granite soils were planted with Chenin Blanc vines shortly after Raats founded his eponymous winery, individually trellised at a ratio of 8,000 vines per hectare - “high density” indeed. Hand harvested and fermented whole bunch with nothing but indigenous yeast, buyers have been consistently enthralled by the purity and transparency of this stunning cuvée.

    Raats Family Cabernet Franc 2019 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (95)

    The 2019 Cabernet Franc Dolomite has an energetic, tensile nose of wonderfully defined red and black fruit, sage, bell pepper and clove aromas; hints of dried blood emerge with time. The palate is very well balanced, taut and fresh, with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, a harmonious, sophisticated finish, and suggestions of black pepper on the aftertaste. This is a brilliant Cabernet Franc from Raats that will age gloriously.
