Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir 2016

Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir 2016

$36.00 NZDPer Bottle

Crimson is our selection of fruit from younger parcels of vines from our various vineyards on the Martinborough Terrace. 2016 marks 36 years on the land at Ata Rangi, our younger vines now aged from 5-20 years. In their youth, vines tend to be more fruit expressive, gaining more complexity with time. The 2016 very much shows a turning point from vibrant youth to tension and complexity that more mature vines bring. Aromatically this wine offers layers of flavours: violets, dark cherry and plum, notes of bitter chocolate and tobacco with a faint whiff of rabbit guts. There is a fresh vibrancy on the palate of acid and smooth tannins pulling the wine through to a long, salivating finish. Cellaring 5 to 10 years.
