Why We Love This Wine

Established in 1993, Craggy Range is a family owned winery situated in the shadow of the spectacular Te Mata Mountain Peak in the premium wine growing area of Hawke's Bay New Zealand. They are focused on becoming one of New Zealand's great wine producers backed by a long term commitment from the Peabody family. Their focus was on selecting bare land, an untouched site to ensure a focus on quality from the very beginning with their search spanning France, America, Australia, and eventually to the edge of the world in New Zealand - a land of mountains, fire, & ice. Here he saw the potential of the country's temperate & maritime climate combined with its youthful soils resulting in a unique growing environment where you can craft wines with freshness, purity, & elegance. Purple red in color, this wine evokes smoky & savory aromatics interwoven with plum, leather, & sweet, cedary oak characters. It boasts a ripe & juicy palate of ripe berry fruit with underpinnings of cedary oak & frim tannins. This impressively concentrated wine would pair well with Braised Lamb & Braised Beef dishes.   

Winemaker / Tasting Notes

Deep ruby with crimson hue. A welcoming aroma of ripe plum and the scent of a winter Christmas kitchen. Exquisitely structured with sweet fruit supported by layers of fine tannin creating a taut yet luscious mouthfeel.
