Description

Raats Dolomite Cabernet Franc is a red wine made by Raats Family Wines in South Africa from Cabernet Franc and Malbec.

His mastery of chenin blanc and cabernet franc is earning him accolades from around the world as Stellenbosch's "most exciting and forward-thinking winemaker".

As part of the new wave of South African winemakers, Bruwer makes soil-specific wines that embody the unique characteristics of the region. With hand-harvesting, whole bunch pressing and the use of natural fermentation without fining or filtering, he helps him create world-class wines.

he grapes come from Stellenbosch and are grown solely on decomposed dolomitic granite soils. This lends itself to great acidity, freshness and a lingering mineral finish. The individual vineyard blocks were hand-picked at perfect ripeness during February.

The grapes were hand sorted three times, crushed and left to cold soak on the skins for five days. After fermentation at a temperature of 28°C, the grapes were basket pressed before malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
