'Syrah is a grape that we both have a soft spot for. We think there are some really special and unique sites and plantings of Syrah in Stellenbosch. These grapes are from a great site in the ward Devon Valley. It is planted on a very rich, deep, red soil with a high clay content.' – Craven

Tasting notes:
'Grapes from Devon Valley, this is 100% whole-bunch fermented. Wonderfully aromatic with top notes of lilies and fynbos to go with red and black berries, white pepper and a little earthiness. Light-bodied but acutely focused and flavour-packed on the palate. With crackling acidity and lovely fine tannins, this is a wine of real composure and energy.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 95/100

Alc: 12.7% | TA: 4.7 g/L | PH: 3.79

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.
