Notes

Their story begins back in 2007 while both 'dragging hose' in Sonoma, California, for the harvest season. A chance meeting between an Aussie and a South African has eventually turned into Craven Wines. Back in 2011 they moved to Stellenbosch, South Africa, a place they both have an affinity for. They both feel Stellenbosch has such an amazing array of sites and terroir, and that it is perfect for what they want to do. Which is make site-specific, honest wines. Let the grapes do the talking.

Tasting notes:
'From a 1988 Helderberg vineyard, all grapes destemmed. A subtle and alluring nose of red cherry, raspberry, fresh herbs, earth and spice. Light and fresh yet simultaneously flavourful and long. Very more-ish.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100
