So beautifully restrained it is almost criminal to taste this wine so young. With time, the wine, which is lightly textured, reveals a nose of gentle spices and sweet cherry. A really graceful Pinot, it has harmonious, gamey character on the palate with intense chewy tannins.
Lively, floral and sappy with a bit of spicy structure and good acidity alongside the focused cherry fruit. Youthful and precise with some smoothness to the fruit, but also some meaty, spicy edges, and some plum skin bite. A really lovely wine.
One of Ata Rangi‘s best - ever wines. The star feature is a silky, mouthfilling, seductive texture, although the complex, layered fruit and savoury flavours are nearly as appealing. Hard to imagine how they can improve on this.
Exotic aromatics of mahogany and sandalwood lead to supple flavours of red liquorice, cranberry, cherry and raspberry that are elegant, precise and balanced. Clove and nutmeg details persist on the finish.
This stunning estate, meaning ‘Dawn Sky’, makes the most revered Pinot Noir in New Zealand… The 2010 vintage from this world class property is the finest vintage I have ever tasted. You must own this wine.
Earthy, loam and underbrush aromas over cranberries, red cherries and red currants plus a whiff of lavender. Medium-bodied and elegant in the mouth, it has low to medium levels of very finely knit tannins that are balanced alongside a medium to high level of soft acidity. It finishes long and earthy.
This is one of Ata Rangi‘s best ever wines. It has a silken, mouth-filling texture.
