About:  In terms of winemaking approach things are kept relatively simple; no cultured yeasts, enzymes or fining agents are added. Juice is pressed into old oak barrels and minimal additions of sulphur are used at bottling. 

Fully destemmed before fermentation to preserve acidity and matured in 500l neutral oak barrels.

The Cinsaut comes from the Rustenhof Farm in Faure. Vines are dry-farmed bush vines and planted on granite and sand.

Mick and his wife Jeanine started Craven Wines in 2014, sourcing fruit from single vineyard sites in and around Stellenbosch and making “site-specific, honest wines”. Originally from Australia Mick met Jeanine whilst working in Sonoma, California, before both moving to South Africa in 2011.
