Wine Of The Week
Craggy Range 2013 Sophia, Hawke’s Bay $72.95
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Lifted aroma with pronounced plum and floral characters. A complex array of flavours on the palate including plum, dark berry, chocolate, spice and a hint of violet. Gorgeous wine with plenty of weight, a silken texture and real energy. Will be very long-lived. (Alcohol 13.5%. Cork) Score: 98 ★★★★★ – view on bobcampbell.nz
