Craven make Stellenbosch wines of real character, taking a low intervention approach which includes fermentation with ambient yeasts and minimal use of sulphur at every stage. This Cinsault is from 25 year old dry-farmed bush vines. It has plenty of structure and a brooding, dark cherry flavour. It's a delicious, grown-up wine, made for the table.

Pale purple. Smoky blackberry, with a slightly funky edge. Lively acidity, some rocky mineral, ripe blackberry fruit and an almost chocolate flavour. Peppery, fairly light tannins and juicy, medium-long finish.
