WINES OF THE WEEK
CRAVEN CINSAULT STELLENBOSCH 2017
South Africa (12.5%, Berry Bros & Rudd, £21.50)
Cinsault is coming back into fashion, appreciated for its drinkability, its silky texture, floral scent and flavours of cranberry, redcurrant and black tea. This one’s made from the fruit of old bush vines, and has a lovely texture.
CRAVEN ‘FIRS VINEYARD’ SYRAH 2017
says Mick). Unmistakably syrah on the nose: very clean and slightly mineral. I loved it.
