Tasting Notes

  • Raka Sauvignon Blanc : Pale straw colour with a lavish bouquet of grapefruit, kumquat, granadilla and a touch of gooseberries. These characters follow through to the palate complemented by mineral tones true to the decomposed sandstone in which the Sauvignon Blanc is cultivated. Crisp green apple finish.
  • Raka Spliced : With rich berry aromas and ripe red fruit, prunes and hints of oak and spices on the nose. The palate reflects the fruity flavours of ripe cherries with a spicy, smoky undertone. Wonderful balance between fruit and wood with a juicy finish.
  • Raka Pinotage : Dark Ruby colour. Perfumes of sweet cherries, blackberries, plums and a spiciness on the nose. Same fruity characters on the palate are wrapped up in soft oak hints. The ripe subtle tannins create a wine ready to enjoy now.
  • Raka Sangiovese : Freshly crushed blueberries, cranberries with hints of spicy cloves and cinnamon. Flavours of roasted cherry tomatoes and earthy tones on the palate, soft and velvety on the finish.
  • Raka Quinary : Dark plum colour. A complex nose of spice, ripe berries and blackberries with slight forest floor earthy tones.
    Mouth filling fruit and elegant oak flavours, juicy tannins and lingering after taste.
  • Raka Biography Shiraz : This rich and deep coloured Shiraz reveals a lot of white pepper, dried herb tinge complimented by pepper coriander tones, with hints of sweet blue & black fruit succulence. These aromas follow through on a silky full body palate with fine dry tannin with a rich and long finish.
