Ata Rangi ‘Crimson’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand – Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date - 22-Oct-2016

18.5+/20

Everything a ‘young vine’ Pinot Noir should be – fresher, lighter, more accessible, and not sharper, harsher or greener as many second labels can be. Moderately deep ruby-red with youthful purple hues. The fruit flavours of dark-red berry fruits are fresh, vibrant, ripe and bright, with nuances of fresh herbs. This has wonderful primary fruit lift and fragrance. On palate just so juicy and succulent, with plush and vibrant dark red cherry and berry fruits, subtle herbal lift, very fine extraction and refreshing acidity. The wine has linearity and seriousness at the core. But it is just delicious. 18.5+/20 Oct 2016 36.00
