Whole bunch pressed, minimal sulphur during short cold settling for the juice before being racked to barrel for spontaneous fermentation (including malolactic fermentation).

They do not own any vineyards, but by far most of the Cravens’ efforts throughout the year is in the vineyards and working with the farmers from whom they buy their fruit. In our opinion Mick and Jeanine are producing some of the most exciting wines coming out of Stellenbosch. Bin: 1213

The Cubillo is a slightly different blend from the standard, being 65% Tempranillo and 25% Garnacha, with the rest Mazuelo and Graciano; this is Lopez de Heredia's entry-level red, a super-dry, lighter styled red that has good fruit but an equal amount of scorched earth, tar and licorice components.
