Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir 2018

Martinborough, New Zealand   |    750ml   |    13.5%
Ata Rangi of New Zealand's Martinborough region has long been considered as one of the finest 'New World' Pinot Noirs, in fact their Estate Pinot Noir is widely regarded as the greatest example of the variety outside of Burgundy. Crimson is Ata Rangi's selection of fruit from younger parcels of vines from their various vineyards on the Martinborough Terrace. In their youth, vines tend to be more fruit expressive, gaining more complexity with time. Now, Crimson is developing more depth of flavour, with a mix of vines aged from 5 to 20 years.

The 2018 Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir again provides a wonderful entry-level to Ata Rangi, delivering plenty of drink-now pleasure at an exceptional value price

"94 Points. It’s beautifully ripe and fragrant on the nose showing sweet cherry, plum, thyme and toasted nut characters, followed by a succulent palate that’s fleshy and beautifully flowing. It’s fabulously polished and harmonious, offering delectable fruit flavours with elegant spicy complexity."- Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2019.

"94 Points. Ata Rangi’s Crimson Pinot Noir 2018 is an aromatic pinot noir with an appealing mix of cherry, plum, mint, dried herbs, and spicy, stemmy flavours. Supple, attractive wine that’s perhaps not as concentrated as its distinguished stablemate but represents excellent value at this price. A wine of character and class. (NZD $38)" - Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review.

"93 Points. There’s so much to this wine. It is a pinot that really speaks of quality tannin, fresh and quite concentrated fruit flavors and a layered, succulent, fleshy and rich, dark-cherry finish. One of the best value wines on the planet, hands down!" - Nick Stocks, www.jamessuckling.com, October 2019.

Crimson is our selection of fruit from younger parcels of vines from our various vineyards on the Martinborough Terrace. In their youth, vines tend to be more fruit expressive, gaining more complexity with time. Now, Crimson is developing more depth of flavour, with a mix of vines aged from 5 to 20 years.

The nose is complex and beguiling with notes of cranberry, raspberry, carraway and an earthy spice note. The season of 2018 has delivered a finely structured palate, with a gentle sweet entry and enticing bramble fruits and finishes with a flourish of fine savoury tannins – classic Martinborough.

The winemaking philosophy is the same as for our signature Pinot Noir: no enzymes or yeasts are added, providing a hands-off, traditional approach which we feel more truly expresses the site.
