Ata Rangi of Martinborough, New Zealand has long been considered as one of the finest 'New World' Pinot Noirs, in fact many regard it as the greatest example of the variety outside of Burgundy.
With an uncompromising approach to quality in the vineyard and winery, Ata Rangi always deliver a generously flavoured, superbly complex yet beautifully perfumed Pinot Noir.
Only the oldest parcels of fruit are used in this, our premium Pinot Noir. The fabled Abel clone, allegedly smuggled from Burgundy in the mid-70s, makes up 40% of the blend. The result is a very complex, structured wine, beautifully perfumed in the classic Ata Rangi style. Exotic spice of star anise and sandalwood layer with dark cherry and rose petal on the nose. As is a hallmark of our Pinot, a savoury herbal note reminiscent of oregano offsets more overt fruit characters. The palate is bright, fluid and focused. Fine tannins build through the mid palate carrying the wine to a long elegant finish.
