Wine Of The Week
Craggy Range 2013 Le Sol Syrah, Hawke’s Bay $105
Craggy Range’s flagship wine from a vintage that has been hailed as “once in a lifetime”. Dense but not a heavy wine, lithe rather than blockbuster although certainly not lacking power. Tightly packed flavours. including dark berry, Oriental spices, oak and a suggestion of floral characters are gradually displayed and will continue to be revealed as the wine ages. A truly classic Le Sol. Score: 98 ★★★★★ – view on bobcampbell.nz
