About this Item

Cabernet Franc, 2007
3 (1 x 3) 1500ml
Specialising in Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc, Raats Family Wines was established by Bruwer Raats at the turn of the millennium. He believes the secret to his Cabernet Francs success is that they are old vines grown on decomposed dolomite granite. This belief was not unfounded, as today, Raats Family Wines is regarded as a leader of South Africa’s Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, receiving consistent local and international accolades. Early vintages are elegant, refined and still remarkably young today.

Critics Ratings

‘Understated loganberry fragrance on classic-oriented ‘07, leafy forest floor notes; elegant, firm structural support for clear fruit. Sensitively oaked, 25% new.’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2010, 4.5*
