Craven Cinsaut 2023


100% Cinsaut from a single vineyard in Stellenbosch. The fruit is de-stemmed and fermented on skins for 7-10 days and aged in concrete until bottling after 9 months.

The 2023 Craven Cinsaut is full of proper elegance and charm. It is both super perfumed and vivid. The tannin/fruit balance on the Cinsaut is particularly alluring this year.

Neal Martin of Vinous:
“The husband and wife team represent the artisanal, natural side of the Cape wine scene … these are minimal intervention, subtle wines that are as much about texture as aromas and flavours. What I like is that they flirt with edginess and “funk” but rarely cross that line so that Craven’s wines avoid falling into the trap of tasting like a philosophy.”
“They just taste…good.”

Working exclusively with Stellenbosch WO, this couple have been making Craven since 2013. All their wines are mono-varietal and there is no blending between vineyards. Their goals are purity, freshness and balance – there is minimal interference with the grapes once they reach the cellar. They do not own any vineyards, but by far most of the Cravens’ efforts throughout the year is in the vineyards and working with the farmers from whom they buy their fruit. In our opinion Mick and Jeanine are producing some of the most exciting wines coming out of Stellenbosch
