Raats Old Vine Chenin Blanc is a jewel in the Raats family crown. A complex wine with fragrant quince, white peach and fenugreek and real depth of character. The palate is perfectly balanced, poised and has a lovely delicate texture and a long fresh finish - lingering in your mouth with hints of juicy nectarine, apricot and lemon zest. Top Chenin from this esteemed producer.
