Winery information:

Craggy Range has 100 hectares of vineyards in the Gimblett Gravels in Hawkes Bay. The stony soils of this former quarry are located on the same latitude as Madrid, protected from the cooling breeze of the South Pacific to create a warm and dry environment which is the on a par with climate of Bordeaux and Northern Rhône. It is here that Craggy Range grow Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah grapes.

Once known as the "Block 14" Syrah, the Gimblett Gravels Syrah is now a wine made using multiple parcels from the same vineyard. The blending of these different parcels combine to create a wine that is truly distinct and appealing. The vines originate from a Heritage clone of Syrah brought to New Zealand approximately 150 years ago. They produces a wine with an aromatic lift of floral and pepper aromatics and a lushness and denseness on the palate combined with fresh and fine natural acidity.


Tasting Note:

Deep red with vibrant purple hues. Complex aromatics of boysenberry, black pepper, cedar, anise and garrigue herbs. The palate is beautifully poised with the richness and dark berry ripeness balanced with fine acidity and superb fine minerally tannins, finishing dry and long.
