Aromatic and complex, this white shows off pure white and ruby grapefruit, lemongrass, passion fruit and dried pineapple flavors at the core, but it’s the details of matcha, sea salt, fresh-grated ginger and mint that make an impression on the long, sleek, juicy and expressive finish.

Founded in 1997, Craggy Range exclusively crafts single-vineyard, terroir-driven wines and is a benchmark ambassador for the high quality of New Zealand’s wines. The grapes are partially hand harvested from the estate-owned Te Muna Road Vineyard. 85% of the grapes are destemmed before fermentation in stainless steel tanks and oak barriques using partial wild yeasts. The wine ages on its lees for 5 months in old and new French oak barrels before being fined, filtered and bottled.
