Craggy Range Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels Vineyard 2015

SKU 690300550574


Deep crimson red. Complex aromatics of ripe plum, a touch of cassis, fresh rosemary and roasted meats. The palate is generous and approachable, but also has a high level of sophistication with fine grained tannins enveloping a dense body of succulent black fruits. Food Pairings: A terrific pairing with all types of rich, red meat dishes, especially stews and grilled steaks.

Wine EnthusiastThere's plenty of oak on this full-bodied Bordeaux blend in the form of cedar spice, dusting polish and Dr. Pepper, but it's balanced by juicy blackberries, florals, and the signature Gimblett Gravels stoniness. Lively acidity lifts the powerful, grainy tannins out of broody beast territory. This should age nicely to boot. Drink now-2027.
