Raats Original Chenin Blanc is IWC (International Wine Challenge) 2010 Commended and it is very easy to see why. A superb Chenin Blanc with delicate fruits on both the nose and palate. Very refreshing thanks to its acidity and relatively a good balance. The Raats Original Chenin Blanc is from a combination of the decomposed granite soil and table mountain sandstone soil which brings out white fruit flavours in the wine such as apple and pears.

"I did not choose winemaking, winemaking chose me. I remember picking grapes in 1992 in Stellenbosch, and I was so happy, I knew that if I became a winemaker I would feel like a king. I believe in sustainable farming. This means that whatever I do, I try and leave the soil in a better condition than when I found it. I have realised, however, that whatever techniques you use as a winemaker, none have such a big impact on the process as having a positive energy in the vineyard and in the cellar (one of my key points!). It's vital that everybody you work with focusses on making a unique and special wine, rather than applying fancy and clever techniques."
