Pinot Noir Wellington Martinborough New Zealand
From the Ata Rangi and Champ Ali, Di Mattina and Cambrae, Lismore and Dodd Vineyards, a Pinot Noir adherent's sensation, grown to the most splendid winegrowing terroirs in all Martinborough. Ata Rangi is assiduously crafted to express an intensity of style and purity of varietal charm. Vine age is clearly a factor, it expresses itself as a depth, breadth and complexity of character, while articulating a distinctive sense of place, contributing significantly to the consistency and quality of Ata Rangi year after year.
Deep purple colour. Dark cherry melds with bright, lifted red fruit aromas and hints of spice. Floral notes are present, old fashioned violets and a touch of rose. Vibrant, a sinuous, savoury spine of tannin that spreads out to a long, silky finish. Consider decanting when the wine is very young, an hour or two before serving.
