Winemaker Notes

#42 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

Deep blackish red. Dark brooding fruit aromas of black cherry, boysenberry with florals, truffle and tar. The palate is silkily structured, with layered fine tannins giving a texture of silk and rose petals. Flavors of the same black fruits and florals, backed with mushroom, bark, fennel and other spices. Dense yet elegant and poised. The finish gradually unwinds revealing bright red berry and violets.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Smooth and polished, weaving a hint of licorice into the huckleberry, raspberry and plum flavors. A wave of mineral character adds to the depth on the long, refined finish. Drink now through 2016.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
A little pistol of a wine, this packs a range of complex flavors into a tight space. Foresty red fruit flavors are at the center, surrounded by complex herbal notes ranging from black tea to woodland moss and something sharper, lie the bite of fresh parsley. Oak rounds any of the fruit's sharp edges to yield a velvet texture, youthfully compact with the energy to age well.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
With just 5% whole bunch ferment and one-third in French new oak, the delightful 2008 Te Muna Pinot Noir has well-defined nose with raspberry, strawberry and a touch of crushed stones and demonstrates far more clarity than Craggy's other Pinot Noir '08s. The palate is medium-bodied with firm but brittle tannins, slightly lower acidity than expected but with crisp cranberry and raspberry leaf towards the finish. This Pinot has delightful purity and sense of panache. Drink now-2018.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Always dark in color and flavor profile. Craggy Range stays true to those traits with an excellent 2008 from its own Te Muna Road Vineyard. Hints of cocoa, dried herb and leather accent vibrant black cherry and plum flavors, while the tannins are silky and refined. Drink Now-2015

Craggy Range Winery, New Zealand
Craggy Range Winery Winery Video

Craggy Range is a family owned winery established in 1997 named by U.S publication Wine Enthusiast magazine as New World Winery of the Year for 2014. It is situated in the shadow of the spectacular Te Mata Peak in the premium wine growing area of Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Based on the single vineyard philosophy of winemaking, Craggy Range was the first in the Southern Hemisphere to make single vineyard wines from multiple New Zealand regions with grape varieties matched to place. The winery produces a portfolio of quality wines including the iconic Prestige and Family collections, as well as Limited Editions all reflecting the place and the people.

The grapes, grown in exceptional winery-owned New Zealand estate vineyards in Hawke’s Bay, Martinborough and Marlborough, are selected for their special soils and unique climates producing wines of character, quality and authority. The architecturally inspired Giants winery complex and vineyard is also home to the Craggy Range Cellar Door and the award winning restaurant Terroir at Craggy Range. Nestled amongst the vines, the four Craggy Range Vineyard Cottages offer self-contained boutique accommodation.
