There has been a toast or two of a very special red at Craggy Range this week.
A very special red which has been judged as one of the 50 top wines to be awarded a Best in Show medal at the 2019 Decanter World Wine Awards staged in London.
The deep crimson aromatic 2016 Te Kahu was one of three New Zealand wines to make the top 50 — the top 50 having been judged from more than 16,500 wines entered from all over the world.
It was the only Hawke’s Bay wine to pick up a Best in Show medal and was joined by two Marlborough wines, Villa Maria’s 2018 Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc and Te Kairanga’s John Martin Pinot Noir 2017.
