Shows richly expressive aromas and flavors of fresh lime, lemongrass, ripe nectarine, and citrus. Overall, the wine is powerful, crisp, clean and dry.
A harmonious and balanced style with a high level of fruit concentration on the silken mid-palate. A more restrained style than you might anticipate from New Zealand, but this is the windy Wairarapa providing its own interpretation, usually with worryingly low yields to boot. The warmest Kiwi summer on record has dished up ripe apples, grass and pineapple. There’s a fine line of acidity with long length. - Decanter Magazine 94 Points
This has a refined and sleek style to it with very impressive, seamless palate-weight and long, lime and green-mango flavors. The acidity is a treat. Passion-fruit finish. Drink now. Screw cap. - James Suckling 93 Points
Craggy Range’s 2018 Te Muna Road Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is a reassuring return to form. It boasts effusive aromas of guava, gooseberry and pink grapefruit, while remaining resolutely dry on the medium-bodied palate and ending with silky-textured length. - Robert Parker 90 Points
While the texture of this wine is round and sappy, with a green-almond richness, the lime-like acidity adds a spicy, floral edge. It takes sauvignon in a completely different direction than Marlborough’s passion fruit-scented wines. Ready to decant for trout almondine. - Wine & Spirits Magazine 90 Points
