t 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 to 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. To some New Zealand means cool climate winegrowing, but in reality it is much more diverse. In the Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing District in Hawkes Bay, Craggy Range has 100 hectares that were destined to be that quarry. These stony soils located on the same latitude as Madrid, away from the cooling breeze of the South Pacific, create a warm environment, the only part of the country that is as warm and dry as the great French regions of Bordeaux and Hermitage. Not surprisingly it is here they grow Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. And in the middle latitudes, around 40, are what Craggy Range calls the famous “warm-cool” regions of Martinborough, Marlborough, and Nelson. In Martinborough Craggy Range has a spectacular vineyard on Te Muna Road, the home to the majority of its Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc vines, each planted on their own special type of different rocky soil. In the South Island, great farmers in Marlborough and Nelson provide Craggy Range with the best Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling these regions can produce. The “genuinely cool” climate jewel of New Zealand is the Bannockburn region of Central Otago where Craggy Range has a small Pinot Noir parcel that will rival in quality the wines from their Te Muna Road Vineyard in Martinborough. In the Waitaki Valley Craggy Range is pioneering a new cool climate region with plantings of Pinot Gris in limestone rich alluvial soils. Read less

Te Muna Pinot Noir 2007 - Craggy Range : Te Muna Pinot Noir 2007 - Rotwein von Craggy RangeEin tiefes, fast schwarzes Pflaumenrot schimmert im Glas. Äußerst komplex wirken die Aromen der dunklen Früchte, wie Kirschen und Pflaumen, dazu gesellen sich Lakritz und Blüten. Auf sekundärer Ebene addieren sich Düfte nach Kakao, Gewürzen und Erde dazu. Am Gaumen präsentiert sich der Te Muna Pinot Noir 2007 von Craggy Range sehr voll und wird von süßlichen Kirschnoten und Veilchen getragen. Rauchige Noten, Rinde, Gewürze und Lakritze harmonieren wunderbar mit der Frucht. Feine, samtige Tannine und ein voller Körper füllen den Gaumen aus. Das Finale wirkt klar und lang anhaltend.Dieser Rotwein macht Lamm- und Wildgerichte zu einem kulinarischen Erlebnis.Weingut: Craggy RangeLand: NeuseelandRegion: Hawkes BayRebsorte: 100% Pinot NoirInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,0 g/lRestsüße: trockenFassreife: in Barriques gereift (10 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 7-10 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CAuszeichnungen für den Craggy Range Te Muna Pinot Noir:93 Punkte Wine Spectator 2006 (Jg. 2004) Rotwein > Neuseeland > Hawkes Bay

Bright and jazzy up front, with plum and red currant flavors on a lively frame, pointing straight through the long, generous finish, which ends with welcome toast and warmth. Needs time to settle into itself. Best from 2010 through 2014. 160 cases ma... Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from in New Zealand. 2007 Craggy Range Te Muna Road Vineyard Pinot Noir 750ml

Tasting Notes:

Deep plumy red in colour. The aromatics reveal black cherry, bark, plum, dark spices and truffle with a hint of old, dark red rose petal. Rich, yet not heavy, the palate is densely wound and brooding with fine acidity and a core of quality suede like tannin. Flavours of dark berry fruit, ripe plums, fresh dug earth, spice, coffee, hints of fennel and liquorice unfurl on the palate. The wine finishes with length and grace. A wine of engagement rather than ebullience.
