Overview

Aroha is a romantic word in the Maori language of New Zealand meaning love. Reflective of its namesake, Aroha is handcrafted with passion from two unique parcels of Pinot Noir, including one of the legendary Abel clone.

The fruit is grown on a slope of an elevate terrace of fertile land at the Te Muna Road vineyard where an ancient dried river bed delivered nutrient rich soil perfect for growing Pinot Noir.

Expert Reviews

Dense, rich pinot noir with sweet plum, dark berry, floral, violet, spice, anise and nutty oak flavours. Intense, flavoursome wine that is deliciously accessible now but has a promising future. The wine has a perfect balance of fruit sweetness and ripe tannins. It is long and layered with impressive complexity. Rating 98 - Bob Campbell, MW October 2017

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroha delivers an intriguing aromatic mix of wooden spices, dried herbs, dark red roses and dark cherries. Complex red and black fruits unfold on the palate with a dusting of lovely fine tannins.

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
