Craggy Range

Craggy Range was established by American born Terry Peabody and his wife Mary. They shared a love of fine wine and wanted to create a long-term legacy for future generations, so in 1993 they decided to create a wine estate. They did not want to buy an existing property but wished to start their new venture from scratch. They began their search in France and then America and Australia, but eventually found just what they where looking for in New Zealand, and established Craggy Range in 1998. They are located in the shadow of the breathtaking Te Mata Peak in the Hawke's Bay region on the North Island of New Zealand. This spectacular backdrop to their winery stands nearly 400 metres above sea level, hence the name – Craggy Range. Here in their Gimblet Gravels Vineyard, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are planted on stony, sandy and alluvial soils, and produce high quality rich, ripe and elegant red wines. Chardonnay, with pronounced minerality is also grown here. The Kidnappers Vineyard on the Hawke's Bay coastline at Te Awanga is planted with Chardonnay which produces wines with intense flavours and lifted aromatics. The Peabody's extended their search to Martinborough and found a plot in Te Muna Road with two distinct terraces, the higher one has old rocky clay-infused soils that is perfect for the cultivation of Pinot Noir, and the lower has younger gravelly soils interleaved with limestone, and this produces an aromatic minerally Sauvignon Blanc. Craggy Range have a second winery in Hawke's Bay – the Giants Winery, where their stunning red Bordeaux blend “Sophia” is made in its own specially designed circular fermentation cellar. The Peabody's then looked to Marlborough on the South Island of New Zealand and planted their Avery Vineyard in one of the warmest locations of the region with Sauvignon Blanc, which has great complexity. Craggy Range are one of New Zealand's greatest producers and their portfolio of iconic terroir-focused wines are pure expressions of the unique soils on which they are grown. Terry has established a 1000 year trust, meaning that Craggy Range can never be sold, so ensuring that his vision of creating a legacy for his family will always continue.
