NUMBER 1: Raats MR De Compostella 2014
The resultant cuvee is called De Compostella (‘The Compilation of Stars’) and the aim was to make each of the five components able to stand as varietal wines. The wines were tasted blind after one year in the barrel and the blend was then constructed in descending percentages, from the wine which rated highest to that in 5th place. Deep, dark intense ruby colour. Red plum and black cherry fruit with a hint of cinnamon. Rich and muscular with mineral, black berry fruit and dark chocolate on the finish. Harmoniously composed of sufficient of each of the five main Bordeaux varieties to ensure none dominates. This wine shows a consistent, linear flavour profile.
