Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot 2017 Offer
I know I beat this particular drum hard every year but some wines are worth rabbiting on about. In a hypothetical situation where someone was holding a gun to my head demanding I tell them who the best producer of Pinot in NZ was (not sure who this vinous crazed psychopath would be or why they would be threatening me but I like their style) it wouldn’t take me long to throw Ata Rangi up as the pinnacle producer. For me their success is built on two levels, their flagship wine has been consistently in the top group from any vintage over a long number of years but the real trick is just how good the Crimson is in most vintages.
I can’t think of another Pinot producer who crafts such remarkable wine at this price point as consistently as these guys do. It remains one of the great value wine buys in the Southern Hemisphere and the sheer quality and sophistication of the 2017 only serves to reinforce the point. It is unmissable for anyone who loves Pinot.
We really do love this wine and believe it represents one of the best value Pinot produced in the Southern Hemisphere.
