This is the first ever vintage of Chardonnay released by the Cravens. 'Chardonnay is a grape we have always enjoyed drinking and it was only a matter of time before we decided to take the plunge and make our version. 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.' – Craven

Tasting notes:
'Aromatics of citrus and struck match with some blossom and herbal notes in the background. Great fruit expression, lively but nicely integrated acidity and a savoury finish. Light but well balanced, this very much recalls Chablis in style.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 93/100

Alc: 12.5% | TA: 6.4 g/L | PH: 3.29

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.
