Craggy Range Martinbogh Pinot Noir 750ML
91 points, “This vintage of Pinot, grown at the bottom of the North Island, is a sassy spicy little number. It bursts forth cinnamon, clove and tree-bark aromas accompanied by ripe cranberry and redcurrant fruit along with a whiff of violets. It's medium weighted, lacing crunchy fruit with the sinewy savoury tannins typical to Martinborough.” – Wine Enthusiast
Craggy Range have created a classic Martinborough Pinot Noir. We adore the bouncy red fruit, black cherry, dried herbs and balanced oak char; that combination of sweet and savoury makes for a wonderful and versatile food wine. It loves tomato sauces, meze, slow-cooked stews, roasts and grilled chicken.
