New Zealand’s greatest grape?
"...the white wine grape of which New Zealanders should be most proud is not Sauvignon Blanc but Chardonnay."
Robinson, www.ft.com May 29th, 2015.
And here’s the proof! This remarkable Chardonnay is made with premium grapes hand-harvested from a single vineyard (just as they do in Burgundy). It is then barrel-aged in fine French barriques at Craggy Range’s cutting-edge winery - the most technically advanced in all New Zealand.
The winning combination of meticulous attention to detail and a burning ambition to beat the French at their own game makes this truly outstanding.
Exemplary winemaking by Matt Stafford (shown left) coaxes exquisite layers of citrus complexity from each precious grape for a white of unfettered opulence and finesse. If it were from Burgundy, you’d probably have to pay three times the price for such sublime quality.
