Ata Rangi 'Crimson' Pinot Noir 2016
"Martinborough pinot noir at the hand of one of the masters. The name Crimson is inspired by a love of rata and pohutakawa, New Zealand͛s stunning red-flowering native trees. Sales of this wine support the Project Crimson charitable conservation trust͛. It isn͛t the flagship pinot from Ata Rangi but boy is this a powerful wine. Impressive to say the least. This is muscular and dense, in a varietal context, with satsuma plum, steel, black cherry and campfire notes bleeding gradually into sweet spice and stem. It͛s as intricate as it is integrated. It͛s primed with tannin, all spicy and ripe, and it still manages to fan ample flavour out through the finish. It͛s all quite remarkable, really. 94 points." – Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front.
