Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw color with faint green hues. Lemon, cream, floral and nut characters blend on the nose to form a complex bouquet. The palate is tightly structured with firm acidity and a grainy texture with flavors of white peach, flowers and a hint of roasted nuts.

About Craggy Range Winery:

From the beginning, Craggy Range Winery has some great land and vineyards and a wonderful home in which to weave the strands together. The first wines made in the 1999 vintage are from small parcels of mature vineyards in Marlborough and Hawkes Bay. The wines show the character of the vineyards and the Craggy Range philosophy of wine both inside and outside the bottle. In time, as the vines mature on their own estates, the wines of Craggy Range Winery will without doubt express their origin and the commitment and skill of their people.
