CLAIRETTE BLANCHE 2014
CRAVEN

Due to the popularity of other varieties, Clairette Blanche is a grape which has fallen out of favour in South Africa. Luckily, Craven have managed to get their hands on some of the last of this dying breed and do something amazing.

  • Honeyed nose with hints of lime and green apple; opens up on the palate; beautiful texture and good acidity.
  • Half the grapes are fermented in neutral barrels and the other half in stainless steel.
  • Average age of the vines is 35 years old.
  • Drink it young while it’s fresh.
  • Delicious on its own.
