Description

The formation of MR de Compostella epitomizes the meeting of two strong winemaking minds and an existing friendship between Mzokona Mvemve (the M) and Bruwer Raats (the R). de Compostella itself refers to a constellation of stars, with each shining star being a tiny addition to the larger blend of the galaxy that makes for something spectacular. Together, the MR de Compostella is driven neither by style nor variety, but by its leading star component – quality. Since 2008, the MR has received no less than 95 points in the Wine Advocate.

‘Our idea is to make a consistent, world class ultra premium wine,’ says Bruwer Raats of MR de Compostella, the wine he makes with Mzokhona Mvemve. No one would deny that they’ve succeeded. Year after year, this Cabernet Sauvignon-based red blend is close to the top of the pile. Built to last, this is an ambitious, stylish, polished wine with restrained power, fine tannins and scented oak. 2022-35.’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 95/100
