Mvemve Raats
De Compostella, 2007
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Mvemve Raats, or MR for short, is a collaboration between Bruwer Raats and Mzokhona Mvemve. De Compostella, meaning ‘field of stars’, is their icon with an international reputation for being a stellar Cabernet Franc-driven Bordeaux blend – with all the trophies to prove it. It stands today as the highest rated Bordeaux-styled red wine from South Africa by the Wine Advocate was and quoted be Neal Martin as ‘one of the most memorable wines in the world’. It was also named one of the Top 10 Reds from South Africa for 4 consecutive vintages in US publication Wine Spectator.

 Wine Storage

The 2007 MR de Compostella was apparently the most backward of all the vintages according to Bruwer and only began to open last year. It has a wonderful bouquet, perhaps more complex than the previous two vintages: harmonious and focused with very pure black fruit mixed with melted tar and violets. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, crisp acidity and subtle notes of dark chocolate and mint on the deft finish. This is a long-term wine and perhaps the first bona fide classic.’ - Neal Martin 93/100, Wine Advocate, (2010)
