Craggy Range

Craggy Range ‘Sophia’ 2015, Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay
Rafter from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc – the bouquet is vibrant, rich, intense and focused on the ripe of dark red berry fruits and the oak that brings their aromas together as one. Dark plum, black berry and black currant, violets and dried herb, some tobacco and layers of wood influences from chocolate to bacon to baking spices. On the palate – firm, dry and intense; flavours reflect the bouquet with very firm yet ripe tannins, bold and forward acidity, concentrated and lengthy. A fine wine with a significant life ahead. A must cellar wine. If you must try decant several hours ahead of drinking. Best from 2022 through 2032+

96 Points
