RP 94 : Voluminous and very pure bouquet, ebullient red cherry and wild strawberry fruit, with just a touch of cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with sensual tannin, as usual, and with perfectly judged acidity;

Originally a partnership between brothers Bruwer and Jasper Raats, with their father Jasper Snr as viticulturist that passed away in 2009. Cousin, Gavin Bruwer Slabbert joined Bruwer as Winemaker and Viticulturist in 2009 and this relationship has seen Raats Family Wines flourished.

Armin and Remy Grassa are brothers in life and in their work. Sons of Yves Grassa, the famous Gascon wine grower, they have naturally grasped and grown up with modern wine growing methods. Together they bought the Domaine La Hitaire in 1999 where they have transformed and restructured this 110 hectares wine estate.

Different grape varieties that are not so common in the region (Sémillon, Chardonnay, Chenin ...) have found their place alongside the precious Petits Manseng that grow opposite the terrace at the entrance of the Castle. The formation of MR de Compostella epitomizes the meeting of two strong winemaking minds and an existing friendship between Mzokona Mvemve (the M) and Bruwer Raats (the R). de Compostella itself refers to a constellation of stars, with each shining star being a tiny addition to the larger blend of the galaxy that makes for something spectacular. Together, the MR de Compostella is driven neither by style nor variety, but by its leading star component quality.
