Raats Chenin Blanc Coastal Region Original Unwooded 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

There is a distinctive yellow apple, pineapple, alongside with notes of green melon and lime. 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 2010 is yet a classical example of this wine and shows the balance between power and elegance. Now in its 10th year of production the consistency in quality is unquestionable. An easy-to-pair wine since it has a wide flavour profile, but we especially recommend it with curry or similar spicy dishes as well as sushi and oysters.
