Craggy Range is a family owned winery established in 1997 named by U.S publication Wine Enthusiast magazine as New World Winery of the Year for 2014. It is situated in the shadow of the spectacular Te Mata Peak in the premium wine growing area of Hawke?s Bay, New Zealand. Based on the single vineyard philosophy of winemaking, Craggy Range was the first in the Southern Hemisphere to make single vineyard wines from multiple New Zealand regions with grape varieties matched to place. The winery produces a portfolio of quality wines including the iconic Prestige and Family collections, as well as Limited Editions all reflecting the place and the people.
93AG. For more than a decade, Craggy Ridge has been that has scored high on my list of favorite New Zealand wine producers. The 2019 Te Muna Sauvignon Blanc is one of their best wines to date. TASTING NOTES: This wine is focused, bright and pleasing. Its pert aromas and flavors of dried citrus peel, whispers of grapefruit skin, and a touch of nectarine should pair its famously with lightly-grilled peaches, Teleme cheese, and a mix of garden lettuces.
