Craggy Range Te Muna Pinot Noir 2017
- Medium bodied
This Martinborough pinot noir from the iconic Craggy Range consistently scores plenty of points, wins awards and takes home trophies by the bagful, as well as receiving rave reviews. And there’s a reason - the wine lives up to the hype.
Yep - magic Martinborough here with full-throttle pinosity. Ripe red-cherry fruit on the nose and a darker edge of plums, with gorgeously integrated French oak. If you can tear your nose out of the glass for just a minute to actually taste the wine, you’ll be mesmerised by the delivery. Plush, soft and generous to begin, the body builds at the back end with a rush of tart cherry, richer blueberry and thanks to its brisk acidity, there’s lovely length to finish. Get on board so you’re not left wondering. There’s so much to enjoy here. The only problem will be that you’ll want to share the experience - just not with too many people as you’ll want a second glass. And a third...
“Founded in 1993, Craggy Range is known for its wines from both Gimblett Gravels in Hawke's Bay and Te Muna Road in Martinborough. The Te Muna Road vineyard is separated into two distinct terraces, with Pinot Noir grown on the rocky, clay infused soils of the upper terrace. Hand harvested grapes are fermented in a combination of French oak and open top stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged in French oak barriques, of which around 25% are new.”

Anyone who's ever tried Martinborough pinot noir will shout its praises from the rooftop... at least, anyone who's not a Marlborough diehard. There seems to be a nice rivalry in the pinot stakes between the two regions, with Martinborough producing more structural (some would say "Burgundian") styles, as opposed to Marlborough's fruity flavour fests. If you see one, nab it. Also keep an eye out for the aromatic whites.
