Craven ‘The Firs’ Syrah 2019


Our favourite Craven wine here at Ex Animo. Fruit comes from a really nice site up on the slopes of Devon Valley. Planted on deep red, iron rich clay soils we love how this soil adds structure and intensity to the wine without having to ripen the grapes to monster levels. 0% destemming to add spiciness and finesse of tannin from the bunches to the wine. Lovely black olive and blackberry fruits. Truly special.

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
