About this Item

De Compostella, 2013
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 and was lauded by 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.

 

Critics Ratings

‘A Cape benchmark, 2013 powerful yet elegant Cabernet Franc-led 5-way Bordeaux blend. Aromas richly mix cassis, dark chocolate and undergrowth, echoing on a palate that’s muscular but focused and athletic, ready now and toned (33% new oak) to go the distance.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2016, 5*

‘A more or less equal blend of the five red Bordeaux varieties, each of them grown on different soil types, this is as refined and concentrated as ever in 2013. Black fruits, fresh tea, mint and cassis with sweet vanilla oak: the balance is very impressive, as are the polished, fine-grained tannins. Drink: 2015-22.’ - Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2015, 95/100
