Raats Family Wines
Dolomite Cabernet Franc 2016 Raats Family Wines
South Africa / Stellenbosch
Andy's Tasting Notes
The ‘baby’ of the Raats Cabernet Franc range, but with a tremendous price to quality ratio.
Good structure but softer than its big brother, with mulberry and raspberry fruit, herbs and minerality. Named Dolomite after the decomposed granite subsoil on which the vines grow.
