Vinification in open top stainless steel tanks. Maturation in French oak barriques, 20% new.
Deepest red with a vibrant purple hue. Beautiful aromatics of violet, dark rose, freshly cracked pepper and boysenberry. Wonderful fruit purity on the palate balanced with precise acidity and fine, dusty tannins for a long, elegant finish.
Craggy Range produces a collection of iconic wines from multiple regions in New Zealand. Owner Terry Peabody and his family pursued the single vineyard approach to winemaking, planting on green fields and bare land ensuring a focus on quality from the very beginning. New Zealand, with its diversity of soils types offered the perfect location to plant the vines. From the stony, warm soils of the Gimblett Gravels in Hawke's Bay to the volcanic, clay soils of Te Muna Road in Martinborough these exceptional vineyards produce wines with amazing aromatics, purity and complexity. The wines, produced for the Prestige and Family Collections are pure expressions of the unique terroir in which they were grown.

Medium deep crimson. Fresh peppery aniseed, blackberry aromas. Inky textured wine with supple dark berry fruits, fine grainy tannins and underlying mocha oak complexity. Tannins build up at the finish but the sweet fruit follows through giving length of flavour. 94+ Points.
