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 is their 2023 vintage Rosé and it’s every bit the classy style you’d expect from Craggy. Actually we did a double take to make sure we weren’t looking at a French style Rosé – it’s gorgeously pale and light salmon in colour, it’s a light, mouth watering style with a dry finish.

Scoring a whopping 95/100 with Master of Wine Bob Campbell who said “Making good rosé is a balancing act. Sweetness must be subliminal. You need flavour of course but it shouldn’t be excessive. You need to get the rosé lover’s attention gently without knocking their false teeth out. This wine achieves those goals beautifully.”
