Raats Family Wines, Original Unwooded Chenin Blanc 2017, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Tasting Note: A bright chenin blanc.
Medium-intensity lemon in color this wine has a nose of green apple and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied chenin blanc has clean, citrus and green fruit flavors.
Bottle Note: “Original” celebrates chenin blanc at its most natural and is crafted without oak to preserve all the original vibrant freshness and flavors of this unique variety. It reflects the lifelong passion our family has for chenin and pairs effortlessly with a variety of foods. We particularly enjoy it with spicy prawn dishes, calamari, sushi and oysters – but why wait for food. – Bruwer Raats.
