Based on the single vineyard philosophy of winemaking, Craggy Range was the first in the Southern Hemisphere to specialise in the production of single vineyard wines from the most prestigious winegrowing regions across New Zealand including Martinborough, Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough.

Once known as the “block 14” syrah, the Gimblett Gravels Syrah is now a wine made using multiple parcels from the vineyard. The blending of these different parcels combine to create a wine that is truly distinct and appealing. The vines originate from a Heritage clone of Syrah brought to New Zealand approximately 150 years ago. It produces a wine with an aromatic lift of floral and pepper aromatics and a lushness and denseness on the palate combined with fresh and fine natural acidity.

So seductively fragrant and just packed with pepper and baking spices, across graphite, dark stones and blackberries. Big impact and very fresh. The palate has a very concentrated, agile and energetic feel with fine-grained tannins carrying fresh red-plum and blackberry flavors. Drink or hold.

Notably good. Power and control. Cruises across the palate with fine tannin, succulent red and black berry fruit character, ferrous spice and some new leather and mahogany going on. Excellent texture, fine weave of al dente tannins, a flourish of fruit, spice and savoury to finish. Classy gear. Tasted: May 2021 Alcohol: 13.3%; Price: $45; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2021-2035; Rated: 95 Points; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front

Very bright, deep purple colour. Smoky-reductive aromas overlie the spice and berry fruit nuances, while the palate is deliciously full and rounded, elegant and yet structured, with a long finish and evident ageing potential. Accessible and enjoyable already and has a bright future. Date: Nov 2021; Rating 96 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
