Expert Reviews

A wine showing the potential to develop real interest and complexity over the next 7-9 years, Dark purple-hued ruby-red in colour, this has a plush, flowing, very aromatic bouquet of black plums, black berry fruits, tobacco, earth and spicy-charry oak. An elegantly sized wine in mouth, this combines the richness of the currant, berry and plum fruit with supple, fine-textured tannins. Freshness from acidity and the balanced, harmonious nature will make it an excellent wine with game and flavoursome red meat dishes.5 Stars - Raymond Chan (JAN/2010)

An attractively priced, screw-topped proprietary red from one of New Zealand's top producers, the 2009 Craggy Range Te Kahu hits all the right notes. Bright and balanced, with mouthfilling black fruit flavors, yet lively acidity, it's an extremely versatile food wine. As you might expect from a merlot-dominant bordeaux-style blend, ripe plumpness comes wrapped in soft, textured tannins that check the fattiness of meat dishes, but its tartness complements those with a tomato base too. Additional spicy nuances -- cedar and smoke -- emerged when I sipped the final glass with a plate of hard cheeses: gruyere, Canadian cheddar, Wensleydale.Elin McCoy, Zester Daily (FEB/2011)

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
