4 /5

Op de bruiloft van een vriend.
Het geel Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc zich onderscheidt door zijn helderheid. Ik ben geen expert op bloemen, maar de Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc deed me denken aan narcis. Zeer lange nasmaak.
Het was een kip met rijst.

Adoro partilhar este vinho com amigos.
O Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc praticamente não tinha cor. Pareceu-me que o Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc cheirava a manga, banana e pêra . No final ficou como um toque amargo muito suave.
Acompanhou um arroz de cogumelos.

Tem uma cor amarelo carregado. Neste Stellenbosch, sentem-se aromas a limão e toranja.Mais suave do que o 2017.
Pedi com arroz 3 delícias.
Bebemos a garrafa em pouco tempo, com amigos e boa conversa.

Reviews of other vintages of Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc 201702015

4/5

- The wine offers a complex nose showing quince, white peach, yellow apple, acacia, nettles, white pepper and fenu greek spices and an intense minerality. The stone fruit character follows through onto an exceptionally balanced, very delicate, fine textured limey palate showing a peach-melba character with an exquisite roundness and freshness. The wine lingers with hints of ripe nectarine and apricot, zesty lemon and wet chalk.
- 100% Chenin Blanc.
- Pairs well with a variety of foods, but we recommend tempura prawns, a pear/walnut/rocket salad, roasted red pepper soup, spicy chicken wings and grilled halloumi cheese.
- Limited stock, new vintage coming November 2017.
