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 flavors. The wine ends with zesty citrus flavors, and has a long mineral finish. The Raats Original Chenin Blanc 2016 is a classic example of a Chenin Blanc made from older vines, grown in very specific soil types. Now in its 16th year of production, the consistency in quality is unquestionable.
