Positioned in the Top 100 SA Wines for its 2013 and 2012 vintages,
the Raats Red Jasper is a must for any cellar. It is an unusual Bordeaux-style blend as it is very Cabernet Franc-driven. This strong presence of Cab Franc is responsible for the delicate dark berry fruit,
perfume and violets on the nose. The palate delights with its interaction between blueberry, blackberry,
and blackcurrant flavours with dark chocolate and tobacco. Overall,
the wine is well structured and multifaceted. It can be aged for 6 to 8 years after vintage.
