Craggy Range ‘Te Muna Four’ Te Muna Road Martinborough 2014

Blended White from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 20-Sep-2015
A field blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, simultaneously hand-picked, 80% WBP and 20% (the Gewurztraminer) destemmed, and indigenous yeast co-fermented in seasoned French oak barriques to 12.44% alc. and 2.4 g/L RS, the wine aged 5 months on lees. Bright, pale straw colour, near clear on the rim. The nose is soft and densely concentrated with aromas of minerals entwined with white florals and stonefruits, along with a subtle and restrained line of rose-petal florals and steel. This has a mouthwatering purity to the aromatics. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate features a soft, smooth, rounded and seamless mouthfeel with a subtle richness and unctuousness. A fresh, steely acid zestiness emerges to provide cut and balance. The fruit flavours of white and florals are delicately lifted by rose perfumes and flow along a good linear core, carrying to a long, minerally, mouth-wateringly dry finish with very fine textures. This is a smooth and seamless, dry aromatic blend with florals and underlying fresh, zestiness. Match with fine Asian fare over the next 4+ years. 18.0/20 Sep 2015 RRP $42.95
