A tale of two families: Terry Peabody and his family had searched for ten years to find the place and the people that could fulfill a dream ... (more...)— that they could make some of the best wine in the world.It was this notion of legacy — to create something greater than the here and now — that led Terry Peabody in 1997 to Steve Smith and to the development of Craggy Range. Together they set a plan to buy the best vineyard land, select some parcels of grapes grown by the country’s best farmers, and to choose a place for their homes, cellars and country restaurant. Their aim was to make single-vineyard wines — wines that are true expressions of the vineyard’s terroir — that will compete with the best in the world.
A lively white, with pretty Asian pear and lime flavors at the core, hinting at parsley as the finish lingers.
Craggy Range , Sauvignon Blanc "Te Muna Road Vineyard" - 2009(SL-A5828)
Tart and dry with nice pear flavors. Thick mouth feel for white wine. Compared to the other sauvignon blancs at the restaurant, it seemed like a good value
