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.
ANDREW CAILLARD MW
Medium deep crimson. Intense dark plum, blueberry aromas with vanilla, espresso notes. Inky deep wine with lovely dark plum, blueberry fruits, fine grained classical tannins, superb mid plate richness and integrated savoury, vanilla oak. Finishes al dente/ cedary firm with long fresh dark berry fruits. Well balanced wine with understated power and well-modulated tannins.
BOB CAMPBELL MW - THE REAL REVIEW
A merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon blend from the Gimblett Gravels district. Bright, fruit-focused red wine with red fruits, cedar and spicy oak flavours. An elegant wine that offers great value at this price.
