Raats Family 2020 Cape Winemakers Guild The Fountain Terroir Specific Chenin Blanc (Stellenbosch)

Winemaker: Bruwer Raats. Lightly toasted apple, brioche and ripe pear show on the nose of this attractive white. Additional notes of orange oil, waxy melon rind and fresh wild shrubs add nuance and interest. The palate is smooth and well balanced, with ripe fruit tones that are enlivened by a bright seam of citrusy acidity that carries through to the mouthwatering finish. A just barely there, subtle toasted highlight adds just the faintest woody suggestion to the back of the close. Drink now–2028. Lauren Buzzeo
