Wine of the week
Clairette used to be planted all over South Africa, but has mostly been ripped out to be replaced by more fashionable varieties. Craven make one of the last 100% Clairette wines in Stellenbosch, from a single block of vines that have been spared. It is a beautifully balanced wine, soft yet with lovely apple and pear freshness.
