90+ Points - The Wine advocate
The 2015 Kidnappers Vineyard Chardonnay is delicately scented of apples and lemon curd with hints of baking bread, cashews and honeysuckle. Light to medium-bodied, it has a very appealing savory/yeasty character on the palate off-setting the citrus flavors, finishing long." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer
Craggy Range is a family owned winery established in 1997 and situated in the shadow of the spectacular Te Mata Peak in the premium wine growing area of Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand.
Craggy Range produces a collection of iconic wines from multiple regions throughout the country. Owner Terry Peabody and his family pursued the single vineyard approach to winemaking, planting on green fields and bare land ensuring a focus on quality from the very beginning.
New Zealand, with its diversity of soil types offered the perfect location to plant the vines. From the stony, warm soils of the Gimblett Gravels in Hawke's Bay to the volcanic, clay soils of Te Muna Road in Martinborough these exceptional vineyards produce wines with amazing aromatics, purity and complexity.
The wines, produced for the Prestige and Family Collections are pure expressions of the unique terroir in which they were grown.
