On the palate the wine has an impressive feeling of concentration and linearity. Flavours of kaffir lime, sweet herbs and grapefruit are underpinned by bright acidity and wet riverstone texture. Finishes with length and intensity. A classic Old Renwick.

Expert Reviews

From mature vines in the heart of the Wairau Valley, the 2010 vintage has a fresh, lifted, limey bouquet. hote;lMouthfilling and crisp, with an array of apple, grapefruit and lime flavours, it is sweet-fruited and dry, with a mineral undertow and poised, tight finish. Not ‘showy’, it’s a serious wine for drinking over the next several years; open mid-2011+.Rating 4 Stars - Michael Cooper, Michael Cooper's Buyer's Guide to New Zealand Wines 2011

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

It is a philosophy like no other. To select and source the very best vineyards in the country, plant them with only the vines that are perfectly suited for that terroir. Bottle them all as single estate wines. This simple philosophy, to make wines that speak more of where they come from than any other, is what drives their entire systems of farming and winemaking. Craggy Range has the opportunity to craft a wine business exactly the way it wants to, making the most of 150 years of pioneering winemaking in New Zealand
