2011 Raats Chenin Blanc, South Africa

There is a distinctive yellow apple, pineapple, alongside with notes of green melon and lime on this wine. Beautifully structured on the palate, bursting with fresh yellow and white fruit flavours. The wine finishes subtly, yet distinct with great minerality and citrus flavours. The Raats Original Chenin Blanc 2011 is yet a classical example of this wine and shows the balance between power and elegance. Now in its 11th year of production the consistency in quality is unquestionable.
