Craggy Range Sauvignon Blanc Te Muna Road Vineyard 2022

Martinborough, Wairarapa, North Island, New ZealandWow, this is a fabulous wine. Te Muna Road sauvignon is a pure expression of sauvignon, packed full of minerality and acidity that electrifies the palate. Fresh juicy lime leaf and passionfruit power a sophisticated layered, complex white that stands pretty much alone in this category. Western-Australian-born winemaker Julian Grounds is taking this wine to another level. Ready to drink, but it should age effortlessly under screwcap. Te Muna Road Vineyard consists of two distinct soil types — the sauvignon grows on a lower terrace over stony soils sprinkled with limestone.Tasted: 16 August 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
