Winemaker Notes

Pinot Noir is Martinborough's most planted and certainly most acclaimed grape variety. The region's warm, dry summers and mild winters have led to complex and structured wines with subtle aromatics and an elegant finish. The success of Martinborough Pinot Noir has to a large extent driven the rapid development of this very dynamic and quality-focused region.

Critical Acclaim

D 95
Decanter

Lovely ripe red cherry, dark plum and raspberry perfume with a note of cinnamon and smoke. There’s good texture here and some layers of complexity running from savory to violet. Fresh and elegant.

JS 92
James Suckling
Bright red cherries and blueberries on the nose and palate. This has an elegantly fresh, chalky feel. Bright, even and balanced. Very drinkable, flavorsome and elegant pinot. Drink now. Screw cap.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

This is an approachable drop now, but could happily cellar for another seven to eight years. The fragrant nose offers ripe red cherry, floral, cinnamon, clove, damp earth and a lick of oak spice. Medium bodied, the palate is slippery textured and laced together with savory, grainy tannins. The oak rears up a little on the palate but is relatively balanced by the tangy red berry fruit.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Dark, fleshy blackberry and black cherry flavors are intense and concentrated, with notes of fresh earth, forest floor and white pepper on a velvety frame. Hints of black tea linger on the finish.

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.”
