Raats Family Wines Celebrates Platter Success
The family is celebrating another milestone with the announcement that Platter’s by Diners Club South African Wine Guide 2022 awarded six wines from the Raats collection the coveted 5-star rating.
Congratulations to the entire team for this accolade.
Leading the pack is the highly acclaimed Mvemve Raats MR de Compostella 2018, a cult wine which has consistently impressed local and international wine critics since its maiden vintage in 2004.
Raats Family Wines maintained our reputation as the Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc kings of South Africa with our Eden High Density Single Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2020, Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2020 and Raats Family Cabernet Franc 2019 also scoring top marks.
We are thrilled that our Cape Winemakers Guild wines – The Fountain Terroir Specific Chenin Blanc 2020 CWG Auction Range and the maiden vintage Stella Nova Cabernet Franc 2017 CWG Auction Range – were recognised with 5-star ratings.
This fantastic achievement, as well as our impressive lineage of consistently high scores for previous vintages, is a testimony of the success of our core mission to craft soil-driven Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc of exceptional quality.
We’re always excited about the end of the year as this is when we reveal some of our new releases and latest vintages. This month saw the release of Raats Family Wines Original Chenin Blanc 2021, with Raats Family Wines Old Vine 2020 (Platter 5-star), Raats Family Wines Dolomite Cabernet Franc 2019 and Raats Family Wines Jasper Red Blend 2019 to be revealed in December 2021 through January 2022.
All our wines are available for purchase on our website www.raats.co.za.
Thank you for your friendship and support in 2021, we look forward to sharing our story with you in 2022!
