FROM THE RE­GION

2005 Craggy Range Le Sol Syrah WHILE Aus­tralia emerged a clear win­ner of the 2007 Tri Na­tions, New Zealand took home the sil­ver­ware for best white (2006 Mt Dif­fi­culty Tar­get Gully Ries­ling), best red (2005 Craggy Range Le Sol Syrah) and best over­all wine (Craggy Range). It is the sec­ond time Craggy has topped the shi­raz class, re­mind­ing Aus­tralians that the Gim­blett Grav­els re­gion of Hawkes Bay is ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing world-class shi­raz. It has ex­cep­tion­ally bright and vi­brant fruit (mak­ing you won­der whether it has a touch of viog­nier) and se­duc­tively silky mouth­feel. Mt Dif­fi­culty is best known for its pinot noirs but all of its wines are im­ported and dis­trib­uted by Fine Wine Part­ners. James Halliday
