The wine has a distinctive yellow apple and pineapple core, alongside notes of green melon and limes. The wine is thus bursting with fresh fruit flavours. The wine ends with zesty citrus flavours, and has a long mineral finish. The Raats Original Chenin Blanc 2017 is a classic example of a Chenin Blanc made from older vines, grown in very specific soil types. Now in its 17th year of production, the consistency in quality is unquestionable.Food Pairing
