Single vineyard winemaking and Pinot Noir go hand in hand, such is this noble varietals faculty for translating terroir into taste. This tempermental grape demands utmost sensitivity and care, the savoury, brooding characters of Martinborough Pinot Noir are revered and preserved by an artisanal winemaking team obsessed with quality. Eight clones of Pinot Noir, picked off more than forty different parcels on stony soils of the higher terraces at Te Muna Road Vineyard, are woven into a deep dark wine, unravelling layers of fruit and wrapped in silken textures.
Te Muna Road Vineyard is located seven kilometres outside the Martinborough township, at a higher elevation which delays harvest by a week. Stylistically the Pinot Noir here exhibits profound complexity, a reserved intellectual mouthfeel and impressive length on the palate. The vineyard consists of two distinct terraces, one comprised of very old stony soils at a higher altitude, producing exceptional Pinot Noir. Hand picked grapes are gently destemmed, a small amount of whole bunches are included. Fruit is inoculated to a mixture of wild and cultured yeasts, vinified in a mix of open top fermenters and small oak cuves, followed by ten months in a selection of French oak barriques. Alcohol 13.8%
TASTING NOTES
Bright cherry, crimson hues. Bright aromas of cherry, raspberries and dried sage with a hint of smoke for an enticing nose. The palate is well structured with layered fine tannins giving a texture of silk and rose petals. Flavours of black fruits and floral, backed by mushroom and bark, fennels and spice. Dense yet elegant and poised, the taut, focused fruit tannins sit seamlessly on the silky savoury finish.

More About Craggy Range Wines
Terry Peabody and his family searched for ten years to find the place and the people that could fulfil a dream, to make some of the best wine in the world
It was this notion of legacy, to create something greater than the here and now, that led Terry Peabody in 1997 to Steve Smith and the development of Craggy Range. Together they set a plan to buy the best vineyard land, select parcels of grapes grown by the country’s best farmers, and to choose a place for their homes, cellars and country restaurant. Their aim was to make single vineyard wines that are true expressions of the vineyard’s terroir. And an ambition to make the greatest wines in the land. No small goal and one that is not achieved without considerable effort. Craggy Range»
