Craggy's answer to Chardonnay from Chablis: not too heavily oaked and cooler on the palate, with a sophisticated mineral focus. Delicious and highly food-friendly, this wine doesn't shout but its elegance will satisfy lovers of finer Chardonnay and European-styled whites generally.

Overview

Chardonnay

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

94/100 Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier

"A serious wine, dry, balanced and lengthy."

92/100 Jamie Goode (2016 vintage)

"There's a lot of freshness and complexity here. It has elegance and brightmness."

95/100 Decanter (2015 vintage)

"Very attractive bouquet with a mix of sea air, pineapple and papaya. The palate follows through with citrus, then yellow fruits, with just enough nuanced oak to notice and carry the structure forward. Poised and very elegant."
