'The King! A variety we never thought we would entertain ,aking until a lovely little site on the Karibib farm showed itself to us. During ripening it just had lovely flavours at a relatively low sugar level. so we hmade a spur of the minute decision to pick a little bit and make our first Cabernet.' – Craven

Tasting notes:
'Grapes again from Karibib in the Polkadraai Hills, winemaking involved 100% whole-bunch fermentation. An enchanting nose with notes of red and black berries, some attractive leafiness plus violets and a little undergrowth. Medium-bodied with good freshness and a nicely dry finish, this has a touch more vinosity to it than the maiden 2018 and is very pleasurable to drink.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 92/100

Alc: 12.3% | TA: 5.1 g/L | PH: 3.65

About Craven:
As Stellenbosch revolutionaries, Mick and Jeanine Craven’s constant experimentation and their willingness to fight for great little parcels, have made them the poster couple for bringing whole-bunch, skin contact, early picking and all things geeky to Stellenbosch. These Young Gunners are the Stellenbosch champions of light, yet complex wines. Producing single-vineyard wines only, these 2 Stellenbosch revolutionaries know their vineyards like the back of their hands. ‘Craven is one of the most interesting wine projects in South Africa. It's part of the rediscovery of the best vineyard sites in Stellenbosch that's currently underway, with a whole group of young guns looking to find the gems and make interesting wines from them,’ says Jamie Goode.
