Craggy Range produces a collection of iconic wines from multiple regions in New Zealand. Owner Terry Peabody and his family pursued the single vineyard approach to winemaking, planting on green fields and bare land, ensuring a focus on quality from the very beginning. With its diversity of soil types, New Zealand offered the perfect location to plant the vines. From the stony, warm soils of the Gimblett Gravels in Hawke’s Bay to the volcanic, clay soils of Te Muna Road in Martinborough, these exceptional vineyards produce wines with excellent aromatics, purity and complexity. The wines made for the Prestige and Family Collections are pure expressions of the unique terroir they were grown.

Tasting Notes

When to drink
Enjoy now or cellar for 1-2 years
On the nose
Great complexity with nashi pear, roasted almonds but undeniable citrus tones of lemon zest.
On the palate
The palate is as compelling as it is fresh. Pithy grapefruit texture carries kafir lime leaf and freshly ground cashew notes across the mouth. Fantastic persistent acidity ensures that one reaches almost immediately for the second glass.
Product Notes
The relaxed yet sunny environment of our Te Awanga Vineyard near Cape Kidnappers allows the development of intense Chardonnay flavours in the grapes, captured using traditional winemaking techniques seen in the Chablis region France.
