Ata Rangi 'Crimson' Pinot Noir 2013 Magnum
The superb 2013 vintage has yielded a beautifully balanced, fragrant example of Crimson with fine, velvety tannin contributing to the full, plush texture and long, soft finish. The nose is both complex and complete, with its cranberry-like aromas and hints of fresh, ripe raspberry. Spice and red licorice nuances also mingle with the earthier, typical pinot ‘forest floor’ characters. Though a serious pinot which will age at least 5 years, it is ‘classic Crimson’ in style; still very approachable as a young wine.
