Craggy Range Te Muna Sauvignon Blanc is a premium oak-aged style of Sauvignon Blanc sourced exclusively from select parcels of vines from the lower terrace of the Te Muna Road vineyard in Martinborough. A lovely elegant, understated style.
Unusually for Sauvignon Blanc, it was aged for four months in (3% new) French oak barriques.
Craggy Range is a family-owned winery, spectacularly situated in the shadow of Te Mata Peak in the premium Hawkes Bay winegrowing region. Craggy Range produces a portfolio of quality wines including the iconic Prestige, Family and Appellation collections, as well as Limited Editions from exceptional winery-owned vineyards in Hawkes Bay, Martinborough and Marlborough.
"Rarely a hugely pungent expression of Sauvignon, the Te Muna Sauvignon Blanc boasts gentle grassy notes layered over vibrant grapefruit aromas and flavors. It's a relatively simple, medium-bodied wine, but it has a quiet sense of elegance and completeness, with all of its components in fine balance." robertparker.com

A premium oak-aged style of Sauvignon Blanc. Opulent aromatics with notes of white peach, citrus blossom, honeysuckle and kaffir lime. Harmonious and rich on the palate with ripe citrus and fresh apple and a layered, dry, textural feel.
