Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir 2019
DOZEN: $432.00 or $36.00 each
Ata Rangi’s second-label pinot noir made from grapes grown on younger vines than their flagship wine. It is sporting a new label showing a stylised Pohutukawa flower. Seamless, stylish pinot noir with savoury, dried herb, spice, cherry, floral and violet flavours. Deliciously approachable now but should develop well, at least in the medium term. BOB CAMPBELL MW
Love the wine. The new packaging? Dunno, maybe I just don’t like change.
More deeply pitched. A plusher and darker fruited Crimson, equally a touch more structured too. The volume has been ramped up a notch but it’s super fresh and the tannins perfectly measured to support the sappy feeling fruit.
It’s always great but I think it’s a bit more “serious” this year. I want to see it in three or four years. I think it’s got some upward swing.
Always one of my favourite affordable Pinots, Ata seems to keep finding a little extra each year. Another ripper. ROSCOE
