Sauvignon Blanc is New Zealandís most widely grown variety made famous by the distinctive wines of Marlborough and Martinborough.
Craggy Rangeís philosophy of low intervention winemaking deliberately conserves the true character of the grape whilst exposing the textural elements which are more evocative of the site.
Their single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc wines provide a fascinating insight into these site derived differences. From Te Muna Road in Martinborough, the unique limestone soils produce wines that show a distinctive fine soft chalky texture and great elegance. And in Marlborough, their Avery Vineyard yields grapes with great complexity in the lime, citrus blossom and passionfruit spectrum rather than the distinctive herbaceous and grapefruit notes typical of many Marlborough wines.
