Community Tasting Note

  • Callum's Corkers Likes this wine: 82 points

    February 17, 2017 - approx $NZ 26.00
    Screw Cap.

    A bit ordinary, if I'm honest. New World chardonnay but done in the formerly fashionable heavy oak style. Wood on nose and wood in mouth.

    Nose....wood! A bit of peaches and cream.

    Taste .....again, wood! Med-dry wine. Good acid, feels mature at just 4 years old. Very settled, creamy. Just too much wood for me. Unbalanced? What, from the control-freaks at Craggy Range???? Nice almond flavour in there somewhere. Just a hint of minerals.

    VFM? Not good. Will buy other CR whites again, not this one.
