From Stellenbosch revolutionaries, Mick and Jeanine Craven, the new Craven 2020s are elegant wines with a strong sense of place.
'Grapes from Polkadraai Hills. Yellow citrus on nose and palate. Light-bodied with bright acidity and a pithy finish. Clean and precise but somewhat underdone for me – alcohol is 12.1%.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 88/100

'After looking around for a suitable vineyard, we decided we wanted to stay in the Polkadraai Hills for this. We love what the area brings to white wines, a real inherent saltiness and freshness. The 2020 is our second vintage from this lovely vineyard.
In the cellar we whole bunch pressed the grapes to tank to settle overnight. The next day the juice was put into neutral 500L barrels for fermentation and remained there to complete MLF. After 8 months of elevage in the same barrels, the wine was racked and bottled.' – Jeanine and Mick Craven, Winemakers

Producer information 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 winemakers 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.
