Craggy Range Sophia

Review:

This is Craggy Range’s premier Merlot-based red. The 2016 vintage (5*) is a Gimblett Gravels, Hawke’s Bay blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, hand-picked and matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (45 per cent new). Dark and purple-flushed, it is weighty and highly concentrated, with very vibrant plum, spice and blackcurrant flavours, oak complexity, and a finely textured finish. It’s still youthful; open 2021+. (There is no 2017.)
