Editorial Reviews for Craggy Range Sophia Gimblet Gravels Vineyard Hawke's Bay
Mineral and black currant greet the nose, followed by notes of sweet violets, cocoa, and burnt sugar oak spice. On the palate this is very ripe and rich, with a core of dense cassis fruit. While large-scaled, the balance here is very fine, with tannins that are slightly austere yet remain mostly shielded by the fruit’s density, giving this a crisp snap on the rather long finish that continues delivering fruit, spice and mineral notes right to the floral finale. 92pts
Fantastic wine from one of the greatest winemakers in the world. Craggy Range only produces single vineyard wines which is unique for New Zealand. I love everything they produce.
