Winemaker Notes

Bright red cherry with a crimson hue. Aromas of black cherry, gentle toast and wild herbs prevail with a strong sense of the forest. Lovely ripe flavours of black cherry and red fruits are balanced with fine velvety tannins and a hint of dry earth. Long, soft, fine grained finish.

Pair with duck dishes

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Creamy and supple-textured, with complex notes of clay, black tea and star anise, accented by plum compote, tobacco and sage details. Comes together in harmony on the long, lingering finish, where a touch of tomato leaf lingers. Drink now through 2030.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2013 Te Muna Road Vineyard Pinot Noir has a soft-spoken nose at this youthful stage with suggestions of kirsch, roses and wild thyme plus a touch of underbrush. Light to medium-bodied and with great delicacy in the mouth, it has the faintest texture of silky tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with good persistence.

A restrained nose requires aggressive swirling to eventually liberate the somewhat somber aromas of herbal tea, dark currant, plum, spice and violet scents. There is a really lovely mouth feel to the round and supple yet punchy medium-bodied flavors that possess a caressing texture, all wrapped in a delicious, complex and sneaky long finish where a hint of acid tang appears. While this is already approachable I would be inclined to allow it another 3 to 5 years of bottle age as I suspect that tang will eventually round out.

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.

Part of the Wairarapa region in the southern end of the country’s North Island, Martinborough is a bucolic appellation full of artisan, lifestyle wine producers. Above all else, their goals are to tend vineyards for low yields and create wines of supreme quality. Pinot noir is the main grape variety here, occupying over half of the land under vine.

Comparing topography, climate and soils, the region is nearly identical to Marlborough except that it produces top quality reds on the regular.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
