Craggy Range Te Muna Road Sauvignon Blanc 2018
A premium oak-aged style made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc sourced exclusively from several parcels of vines from the lower terrace of the Te Muna Road Vineyard in Martinborough.
Fruit was 10% whole bunch and 90% destemmed. Fermented in combination of French oak cuves, French oak barriques and stainless steel tanks; inoculated and indigenous fermentation. Spent 4 months maturation in French oak barriques, with fining and filtration prior to bottling.
A premium oak-aged style of Sauvignon Blanc. Vibrant aromas of nectarine, green apple, honeysuckle and a hint of nettle. Lovely precision on the palate with a core of zesty fruit and a long satisfyingly dry textural finish.

18 POINTS - Matthew Jukes Wine Reviews, Oct 2017
"Lovely stoney fruit, picked before the rain, and while there were serious cyclone issues the rain was mainly confined to the hills. This is a bracing, lean and raspy wine with rather slender pineappl-y fruit and masses of crunch. Bright, tight and refreshing, it is a superb contrast to many of the more tropical wines from Marlborough."
