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.

Very dark colour. Blackberry, cinnamon, sandalwood and oystershell like minerality mesh for an intense and complex aromaticprofi le. Layers of fi ne tannin lend tension to the opulent fruitflavours and provide the framework for the long and intensefinish.

Tasting Notes:

Dark garnet coloured core with vivid crimson hues. Unctuous blackberry fruit is sprinkled with dried herb notes of wild thyme and rosemary plus a hint of vanilla. Layers of dusty fine tannin provide a savoury impression to match the currant flavours and long spicy finish.
