Craggy Range Aroha Pinot Noir 750ml

Aroha is a romantic word in the Māori language of New Zealand meaning love or affection. This wine is certainly representative of its namesake and is assured evidence of a labour of love. Aroha is a wine crafted from two unique parcels of Pinot Noir, including one of the legendary Abel clone, to produce a true Burgundian style. Aroha delivers an intriguing aromatic mix of wooden spices, dried herbs, dark red roses and dark cherries. Complex red and black fruits unfold on the palate with a dusting of lovely fine oak tannin and then fruit and stem tannin provides the structural backbone. The fruit is grown on a slope of an elevated terrace of fertile land at the Te Muna Road vineyard where an ancient dried river bed delivered nutrient-rich soil producing a style reminiscent of Burgundy. The wine is handmade with passion and truly reflective of the love that has been invested in its making. Deep red in colour it is an intriguing aromatic representation of its unique terroir. Bright dark cherry colour. Beautifully lifted nose of dark rose, spiced red fruits, fresh bark and tar. Elegantly composed on the palate with lovely fruit density carried long by fine acidity and velvet like tannins slowly unfolding for a long and dry finish.
