Craggy Range Te Muna Road Pinot Noir 2019
Craggy Range is a family owned winery established in 1997, and situated in the shadow of the spectacular Te Mata Peak in the premium wine growing area of Hawke’s Bay New Zealand.
Craggy Range produces a collection of iconic wines from grapes grown on exceptional estates in Hawke’s Bay, Martinborough, and Marlborough, with an unrelenting focus on quality. 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 amazing aromatics, purity and complexity.
The 2019 vintage of Te Muna Road Pinot Noir was produced using 70% destemmed, 30% whole bunch and fermented in open top stainless steel tanks and french oak cuves. This wine pairs exceptionally well with pan seared and roasted duck leg, fresh pasta and sauteed mushroom risotto and cna be enjoyed now or cellared for 2-10 years from vintage.
This is not a timid wine. It's rich and round, wearing its brambly, medicinal, earthy, spicy and floral colors loud and proud. The silky mouthfeel is tugged into place by sappy tannins. There's intensity, balance and structure, and a real sense of place. Drink now–2029. - Christina Pickard, Wine Enthusiast, 95 Points
