Craggy Range The Quarry 2020 750ml

Craggy Range The Quarry is up there with New Zealand’s finest Bordeaux blend reds. Named The Quarry after a small group of local vignerons who saved the Gimblett Gravels from becoming a gravel quarry. With a glowing international reputation and a history of critic scores that leaves jaws dropped this is quite simply a must-have for any keen collector. That’s if you can lay your mits on a bottle, global demand massively outstrips supply every release!

This is the 2020 Craggy Range The Quarry release and it’s absolutely no surprise to see it get a near perfect score from Master of Wine Bob Campbell:

98/100 (Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review)
“A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot grapes from the Gimblett Gravels subregion. Dense, almost inky and fine-grained red with cassis, cigar box, black berry, violet and classy French oak flavours. Dominated by perfectly ripe and supremely elegant cabernet sauvignon characters, with an impressive structure of fine, ripe tannins. It promises to age gracefully”

The Quary is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, aged for 18 months in 37% new French oak. What a wine. Cellar for 10-30 years from vintage.
