CRAGGY RANGE TE MUNA PINOT NOIR MARTINBOROUGH 18
Craggy Range is one of the biggest wine producers in Martinborough where 65% of its total production comes from each year, thanks to vast vineyard plantings along the windswept and beautiful Te Muna Road, 9 kilometres east of the Martinborough village.
Hand picked grapes from the Te Muna Vineyard were fermented in a combination of French oak cuves and open top stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. The finished wine was matured in French oak barriques, 22% new, for 10 months. No fining but a coarse filtration results in a satisfyingly savoury dry Pinot with tension and backbone. A stunner now and for the cellar.
