Craven Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2018Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South AfricaFrom west-facing 1999 planted vines on Polkadraai's Karibib Vineyard's decomposed granites, this was early picked and partial whole cluster, fermented native and on skins for a short time before moving into neutral French barrel. This opens into black cherry, wild raspberry, dusty graphite on a slight 12.5 degree palate. Tannins are characteristically granitic grippy and fine, and acidity is easily capable of lofting this to a lingering, stony finish.Tasted: 14 July 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
