Description

Craggy Range Te Muna Riesling 2021

Craggy Range Te Muna Riesling exhibits a juicy texture that is distinctly Martinborough. Pale straw colour with green hues. Intense bouquet of orange blossoms, rose petals, lemon peel and kaffir lime leaf. Taut and long on the palate with a crunchy acidity and unique texture. Fresh and salivating citrus flavours of mandarin, grapefruit and lime.

Ageing potential: Cellar for 1–12 years from vintage.

100% Riesling. The fruit comes rom a small planting of Riesling on the higher terrace of the Te Muna Road Vineyard in Martinborough. The vines grow in volcanic, clay soils and enjoy a temperate, maritime climate.

Hand-picking and whole bunch pressing of the grapes. Cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks and French oak barriques. The wine is left on lees for 4 months after vintage.
