6 (1 x 6) 750ml

 View a Condition Report



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, that ages with grace. It is one of the finest red wines in South Africa.

 

‘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, Wine Advocate, 93/100
