The 2021 Craggy Range Te Muna Road Vineyard Riesling wine has a very pale straw-lemon in colour. This Craggy Range Riesling wine has aromas of lemon curd, kaffir lime leaf and rose petal. The palate is taut and long, with a crunchy lemon acid driving long through the finish. The mid-palate has a delicious pithiness, with varietal flavours of mandarin, grapefruit and lime. A salivating wine that celebrates the freshness of this variety and the Te Muna site.
The Craggy Range Te Muna Road Vineyard is seven kilometres outside the Martinborough township and at higher elevation which delays harvest by about a week. Here they focus on cultivation of the classic cool climate varieties of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. This 2021 Craggy Range Te Muna Road Vineyard Riesling wine is a fine expression of dry Martinborough Riesling.
This Riesling wine goes well with shellfish, shrimps, and spicy food.
