100% whole bunch. Fermentation in closed-top stainless steel tanks & large oak cuves. Matured for 4 months in large oak cuves.
Intensely varietal from first opening. Lavender, rose petal and freshly squeezed lime juice notes all jump from glass. The palate is both deeply complex and immediately enjoyable. Classical floral and citrus note steam through a remarkably textural palate, whilst an arrow head of acidity drives through the centre but is perfectly balanced by deft residual sugar. An upright wine that will stand for the ages. Pork cutlet, glazed turkey or crayfish dishes. Pale golden straw.
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.
