Raats Family Wines Stella Nova Cabernet Franc 2019

100% Cabernet Franc
Wine of Origin Polkadraai Hills Stellenbosch

  • This wine reflects the lifelong passion and focus Bruwer Raats has for Cabernet Franc.
  • A benchmark Cabernet Franc selected from a cool southern-facing block high up on Vlaeberg Mountain in Polkadraai Hills Stellenbosch.
  • The wine tells the story of the unique terroir of the Polkadraai Hills’ decomposed dolomite granite soil.
  • We select a small portion of the block identified as consistently the best, to craft one barrel for the CWG Auction.

Tasting Notes: The nose shows lively dark berry fruit and Morello cherries with hints of star anise and ground fennel seeds. From here, a floral top note of violets further lifts the nose of the wine.

Ready for drinking in 5 to 10 years. 

Winemaker: Bruwer Raats
