Craggy Range 2014 Te Muna Pinot Gris and Gimblett Gravels Rosé

10-Nov-2014
From the outset Craggy Range has produced single vineyard wines of distinction that reflect the varieties and styles most suited to the soils, climate and region where the vineyard sites are located. The focus is now on the company’s holdings in the Gimblett Gravels in Hawke’s Bay and in Te Muna Road in Martinborough. While the most obvious and proven styles have been made with consistent excellence, there has been a degree of research and development, which had led to the release of new wines to the portfolio. Last year, Craggy Range added a rosé from their Gimblett Gravels vineyard, reminiscent of the popular styles from Southern France (click here to see my review). 2014 sees the second vintage, and the wine is joined by a Pinot Gris from the Te Muna Road site. Previously, the fruit from the new vines has gone into an Alsace field blend style called the ‘Te Muna Four’. Both rosé and Pinot Gris are enjoying a rise in popularity, and with the warmer weather on the way, the release of these new, limited availability wines is particularly timely. www.craggyrange.com
