2011 Raats Original Chenin Blanc



Chenin Blanc master Bruwer Raats makes frequent visits to the Big Apple seeking out all the latest and greatest Chenin Blanc bottlings from around the globe. His knowledge and understanding of this often-ignored grape shows in his fabulous estate Chenins both considered to be reference points for top South African Chenin Blanc. Bruwer crafts his "Original" bottling without the use of any oak; this preserves the wine's vibrant fresh fruit character. Packed with succulent ginger, honeysuckle, orange blossom and peach backed by crisp acidity, it's easy to see why the wine is consistently praised in the pages of Wine Spectator as a "Best Value" and a "Smart Buy." We suggest savoring this wine with creative sushi dishes, simply prepared seafood dishes and Asian-inflected recipes. JGS
