Tasting Notes

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 flavours. The wine ends with zesty citrus flavours, and has a long mineral finish. The Raats Original Chenin Blanc 2014 is a classic example of a Chenin Blanc made from older vines, grown in very specific soil types. Now in its 14th year of production, the consistency in quality is unquestionable.

Ageing Potential

2 - 4 years (drinks exceptionally well now)

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.

Critical Acclaim

92 Points, The Wine Advocate - "I actually tasted the 2014 Original Chenin Blanc last year as a tank sample and erroneoulsy put it down as "Old Vine" Chenin Blanc. Still, it has a delightful nose with a very pure lemon curd and nectarine-scented bouquet with just a touch of beewax. The palate is very well balanced with punchy, bitter lemon notes on the entry that keeps you on your toes, backed up with some deep leesy citrus fruit and a well defined, quite tensile finish with salted nuts on the aftertaste. Just a superb expression of the grape variety."
