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
5 Stars Michael Cooper
"The impressive 2016 vintage (5*) was estate-grown, hand-picked and matured for nine months in French oak barriques (23 per cent new). Forward in its appeal, it is deep ruby, mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with concentrated, plummy, spicy, nutty flavours, fine-grained tannins, and excellent complexity and harmony. Drink now or cellar."
96/100 Bob Campbell MW (2015 vintage)
"Absolutely delicious pinot noir, with lifted red and black berry fruits together with an appealing floral and rose petal influence. A concentrated but supple wine in a high energy style and with an appealingly smooth texture. Quite complex with a lengthy finish. 5/2/2017."
