2019 Craggy Range "Te Muna Road" Sauvignon Blanc Martinborough

SKU #1449481 93 points Sam Kim

Outer quote mark Offering terrific fruit purity, the wine shows Granny Smith apple, kaffir lime and fig characters on the nose, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that's succulent and flavoursome. It's varietally expressive, while remaining stylish and poised, making it delightfully drinkable. Inner quote mark (3/2020)

92 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Slightly softer with more restrained acidity than usual but attractive estery, bubble gum, passionfruit and melon flavours. A youthful wine that needs a few months to settle down. Inner quote mark (4/2020)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very fresh, lithe and juicy feel to this sauvignon with bright, juicy green passion fruit and green mangoes taking center stage, amid fresh, stony resolve. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark From the cool-climate of Martinborough, intense aromatics carry zesty grapefruit, tangerine and ripe peach alongside fresh earth notes. These continue on the crisp, mineral palate, where exceptionally bright lemon verbena meets fresh-cut grass, giving way to clean, harmonious finish. (SS) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Complete and complex, this Sauvignon has layers of earthy citrus flavor, from spicy grapefruit zest to tangy orange pulp. The fruit texture is succulent while the acidity offers a bitter edge to keep it firm and structured. Pour it with citrusy fluke crudo. (JG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

K&L Notes

Craggy Range is located in the Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing district of New Zealand but brings in fruit from a several estate vineyards. From the winery: "The Te Muna Road Vineyard is located some seven kilometres outside of the Martinborough township. The vineyard consists of two distinct terraces; the higher comprising very old, stony clay-infused soils perfect for Pinot Noir. The lower terrace of younger stony soils interwoven with limestone provides an excellent environment for Sauvignon Blanc. The cooler climate of Martinborough ensures the wine is aromatic with steely minerality while the rocky soils gives intensity of the fruit. The region's warm, dry summers and mild winters have led to complex and structured wines with subtle aromatics and an elegant finish."

Martinborough may lay claim to some of the best Pinot Noir producers in New Zealand, it also boasts remarkably austere and delicious Sauvignon Blanc as well. Owned by the Peabody family, Craggy Range focuses exclusively on unique, high-quality, distinctive sites throughout New Zealand. In Martinborough, their vineyards sit on the Te Muna Terrace. Sheltered from the otherwise harsh winds that bring icy temperatures to the Martinborough Terrace, Te Muna lies behind a small range of hills that protect the wine from winds, and allows Sauvignon Blanc that develops a fuller, richer style of wine. The 2019 Craggy Range Te Muna Road Sauvignon Blanc is minerality in a glass. Wet stones predominate, with ripened honey crisp apple, kaffir lime, and a creamy lees quality, this is Sauvignon Blan from New Zealand made at its best, by the best.
