Description

Craggy Range Te Muna Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Craggy Range Te Muna Sauvignon Blanc shows a unique level of texture and complexity. Very pale straw colour. Aromatic with a steely minerality, the nose has fresh aromas of passion fruit and kaffir lime leaf. The textural palate is dry with a crunchy acidity and a saline finish that will have you reaching for another glass.

 

Ageing potential: Cellar for 1‚Äď4 years from vintage.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit is grown on the lower terrace of Te Muna Road Vineyard in Martinborough. The vines grow in volcanic rocky, clay soils and enjoy a cool maritime climate.

Partially hand harvesting of the fruit. 10% whole bunch and 90% destemmed fermentation in stainless steel tanks and French oak barriques using partial wild yeasts. The wine ages on its lees for 5 months in old and new French oak barrels before fining, filtering and bottling.

 

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

"Very expressive bouquet with aromas of fresh lemon and crisp red apple, pure, ripe gooseberry and golden kiwifruit suggestions, fresh herbs and fruit spice. Delicious, fresh and quite powerful on the palate with a seam of minerality and back bone of acidity driving the flavours of fresh citrus and white fleshed fruits, some tropical fruit moments and lengthy persistent finish. Well made, fresh, salivating and ready. Best drinking from late 2022 through 2025+."
