Winemaker's Notes:

Pale greenish straw in color. Rich aromatics of fresh lime juice, elderflower, lemongrass, grilled citrus and ripe nectarine. Complex and intriguing. The palate is concentrated and dense, yet retains remarkable linearity and focus. Zesty citrus, stone fruit, herb and floral flavors fill the mouth, a fine chalky mineral texture tightens and focuses the finish. The wine finishes long and powerful, crisp, clean and dry.

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.
