Craggy Range Te Muna Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Martinborough New Zealand
From the lower terrace of Te Muna Road Vineyard in Martinborough, grapes are picked off several parcels of vine grown to stony, limestone influenced soils adjacent Huangarua River. Intervention in the cellar is minimal out of respect for the true character of a special vineyard, whilst exposing the textural elements for a more evocative style of Sauvignon Blanc, achieving a wine with distinctive fine, soft, chalky texture and great elegance.

Craggy Range can focus on their own fastidiously hand managed viticultural regimens to produce parcels of the most unique Sauvignon Blanc from their Te Muna Road Vineyard at Martinborough. The second, lower terrace of the site comprises younger stony soils interlaced with lumps of limestone, providing an excellent environment for Sauvignon Blanc. All white wines from the vineyard show a distinctive fine soft chalky texture and great elegance. Mostly destemmed grapes and a parcel or two of whole bunches are vinified to a mix of wild and cultured yeasts in a combination of fermenters and cuves, followed by several months on gross lees in a selection of seasoned French oak barriques.
Pale straw colour streaked with vibrant green hues. Rich aromatics of fresh lime juice, elderflower, lemongrass and nectarine fruit combine with flint, jasmine and dried herbs for an intense and complex bouquet. The palate is intriguing, concentrated and dense, yet retains remarkable linearity and focus. sweet fruited core is framed by citrus like acidity and gains textural interest via a chalky finish.
