Craggy Range Gimblett Gravels Sophia

 3,500.00

This 2016 Craggy Range Gimblett Gravels Sophia wine has a deep dark red. The perfume is intoxicating with ripe blueberry overlaying cinnamon, brioche and a hint of leafy varietal lingering in the background. The palate sits upright and all-encompassing. The red wine tannins’s are long and silky, flavour concentrated and ripe, the finish endless the hallmarks of one of the great Sophia’s. This Craggy Range Gimblett Gravels Sophia is best paired with slow cooked beef cheek.

The 2016 Craggy Range Sophia has a refined and elegant hand-crafted Merlot dominant blend that represents both the vigneron’s art and an inherent understanding of the land, ensuring ‘Sophia’ is the finest expression of the terroir and the people. ‘Sophia’, meaning ‘wisdom’ in Greek mythology, pays tribute to the goddess of knowledge and experience, information and understanding – a philosophy adopted by our winemakers and viticulturists when crafting this wine.
