A beautifully dry and delicate Rosé from Craggy's hot Gimblett Gravels vineyard. Craggy emulate the French in a way quite uncommon in New Zealand: fuller-bodied grapes Syrah and Merlot are grown not in a moderate but our hottest climate, then harvested at just the right moment and gently pressed for precise fruit flavours and spice nuances. Delicious stuff from the Gravels.

Its Origins

Craggy Range began with the desire to create a legacy. When Terry Peabody visited New Zealand in 1997 he was introduced to Steve Smith, MW. Terry sensed an exciting possibility in New Zealand; the exceptional climate and spirit of the people aligned with his own philosophy and desire to cut a new path. He wanted to create wines that would become internationally regarded as New World classics. The two men made an important decision from the beginning - to select and source the best land in the country, and to plant the vines perfectly suited to that soil and climate. The winery - one of the most technically advanced ever built in New Zealand - is known for uncompromising standards and meticulous craftsmanship.

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes on current 2016 vintage

"Pale salmon with a copper rim. Subtle aromatics of nougat, mandarin and fresh peach. Elegant on the palate with softly textured red berries flowing towards a long salivating finish. Consume as apéritif or with lightly salted fish. Recommended cellaring of 1- 3 years from vintage."

92/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Made from a blend of Merlot and Syrah grapes, which were pressed and the juice was fermented on old French oak barrels. Plum jam and raspberry flavours, with a hint of fresh herbs. Nicely balanced wine with a drying finish 7/12/2015."
