Mick Craven has been a friend of Uncharted for some time and we are delighted to sell his wines in the UK. Mick and his wife Jeanine started Craven Wines in 2014, sourcing fruit from single vineyard sites in and around Stellenbosch and making “site-specific, honest wines”. Originally from Australia Mick met Jeanine whilst working in Sonoma, California, before both moving to South Africa in 2011.

All fruit sourced now comes only from vineyards whose farmers are dedicated to working their land organically. Stellenbosch has an array of different sites and terroirs allowing Mick to “let the grapes do the talking…” Increasingly farmers are understanding the importance of cover crops and removing chemical treatments.

The Chenin Blanc comes from the Polkadraai Hills area of Stellenbosch, planted on sand and granite which imparts a real inherent saltiness and freshness in white wines. Whole bunch pressed into neutral 500l barrels for fermentation and malolactic to take place. Lees aged for 4 months before racking. 9 months in barrel before bottling.
