Sophia sits in Craggy's prestige range and is among the top examples of Hawke's Bay red wine. Vinted from a blend of carefully selected parcels of merlot (60%), cabernet franc (26%) and cabernet franc (14%) from the Gimblett Gravels region, it's complex, dark and robust. An exceptional wine.
The winery writes "Deep dark red. The perfume is intoxicating with ripe blueberry overlaying cinnamon, brioche and a hint of leafy varietal lingering in the background. The palate sits upright and all-encompassing. Tannins are long and silky, flavour concentrated and ripe, the finish endless – the hallmarks of one of the great Sophia’s."
