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.

4.5 Stars Michael Cooper

"Estate-grown in the Gimblett Gravels, the classy 2016 vintage (4.5*) of this Hawke's Bay red is Merlot-based (63 per cent), with smaller portions of Cabernet Sauvignon (18 per cent), Cabernet Franc (14 per cent), Petit Verdot (3 per cent) and Malbec (2 per cent). Matured for 10 months in oak barriques (28 per cent new), it has deep, purplish colour. Fragrant, concentrated and youthful, it's a stylish red, with strong blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, firmly structured and very age-worthy. Best drinking 2020+."
