Tight like a tiger.

My latest preoccupation is finding great examples of unwooded Chenin Blanc and Bruwer Raats has made a very good example in the case of his Original 2015, grapes from Stellenbosch vineyards planted on both granite and sandstone with an average age of 35 years.

On the nose, a fynbos top note plus just a hint of reduction before pear, citrus and peach. The palate meanwhile shows great fruit purity and freshness before a pithy finish. All the precision you’d expect from a Raats wine. Wine Cellar price: R105 a bottle.

#WinemagRating: 90/100.
