Craggy Range Te Muna Road Vineyard Pinot Noir
Right now, starting at the end of February and through March, the other side of the world is going through grape harvest. As we struggle with the slushy end of winter and fitful starts to spring in the Northern Hemisphere, there is really only one appropriate way to get through: break out a bottle from New Zealand! Toast to the hardworking farmers and winemakers gathering grapes for incredible wines like this Pinot Noir. Its name “Te Muna” is Maori for “special” or “secret place,” which fits almost too perfectly for a country chosen to portray Middle Earth.
