Craggy Range • SOPHIA Gimblett Gravels 2016 • Hawke's Bay
92 RP | 92

x close The 2015 Sophia is a blend of 73% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Cabernet Franc. Vanilla and cedar notes frame ample black cherry and cassis fruit on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate boasts supple, velvety tannins and a long, plush finish. One of the more approachable young Sophias, it drinks well now but should age well for at least 10 years.

A refined and elegant hand-crafted merlot dominant blend that represents both the vigneron’s art and inherent understanding of the land, ensuring ‘Sophia’ is the finest expression of the terroir and the people. 

‘Sophia’, meaning ‘wisdom’ in greek mythology, pays tribute to the goddess of knowledge and experience, information and understanding - a philosophy adopted by our winemakers and viticulturists when creating this wine.

Tasting Note :

Deep darkest red. Complex aromatic profile with notes of ripe plum, cassis, dried rose and spice from the finest French Oak. The wine exhibits a wonderful depth of dark red fruits whilst maintaining an enticing level of freshness across the palate. Layered, youthful and persistent, this is a classically composed wine.

Food Paring :

Chateaubriand with shallots, field mushrooms and fresh thyme
