Founded in 1997, Craggy Range exclusively crafts single-vineyard, terroir-driven wines and is a benchmark ambassador for the high quality of New Zealand’s wines. This rosé comes from the Gimblett Gravels Vineyard in Hawkes Bay, where individual parcels of Merlot and Tempranillo are carefully selected for their balanced flavor and freshness. Grapes are destemmed before a gentle pressing for careful color and flavor extraction. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks preserves that freshness and bright character.

Harvest Note
A moderate spring led to an average temperature ripening season defined by several significant rain events. Picking and selection were critical.
Tasting Note
Brilliant rose color in the glass, the Craggy Range Rose bursts with delicate juniper and rosewater aromas, followed by a crushed wild berry fragrance. On the palate, juicy raspberry and pomegranate are finely balanced with a hint of bramble and lifted with fresh acidity.
