Craven ‘Karibib’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2020


This is the third vintage of the Craven Cabernet, and their most accomplished yet.. Like the Chenin Blanc, it is from the Karibib Farm high up in the Polkadraai Hills west of Stellenbosch town, this allows the Cravens to pick earlier (12.5%) yet avoid excessive greenness that can be prevalent in many other Cabernet wines. For the first time, the Cravens destemmed a portion of the fruit. The wine still delivers all the Cabernet flavours you would expect, but it doesn’t come with the 15% alc.
