It’s a little over twenty years since Craggy Range opened their doors and set about becoming one of Hawke’s Bay and Aotearoa’s most iconic, premium producers. It takes a certain somebody with the nouse, skills (and cash!) to get that off the ground. Not just a somebody, a Peabody.
US Billionaires Terry and Mary Peabody launched the now world famous Craggy Range back in 1998. The state of the art winery sits at the foot of the spectacular Te Mata Peak there in Hawke’s Bay along with their multi-award winning winery restaurant and no expense spared luxury winery lodge and cottage accommodation.
The Craggy Range owner was once known as the “Golden Garbo” for turning other people’s garbage/rubbish into his multi billion dollar fortune through his Aussie waste management business. We can promise you that’ll be the only sentence you’ll ever read with the words ‘rubbish’ and ‘Craggy range’ in it. Craggy boast a world class line-up of wines that deserves every bit of praise they get.
This Syrah is from their Gimblett Gravels vineyard and from the 2021 vintage. Craggy describe it as “Deep red with a purple hue. Tremendous aromatic lift, with lavender and sweet cherries rising from the glass. The palate has significant density but a perfect balance that already encourages drinking. Again, so much energy in the 2021 wines but also a concentration due to the low yields. Delightful.”
This is a class act every year and especially in top vintages, which this definitely was for the Hawke’s Bay!
