Ata Rangi Martinborough Pinot Noir 1991

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 30-Jun-2014
A warmer season with a good yield of 42 tonnes of fruit. Helen Masters’ first year, and Brittany born. Full, dark, brick-red colour with some brown hues. The nose is elegant, near slender with delicate and ethereal perfumes of fine red florals entwined with dried herbal secondary complexities. Medium-bodied, tightly bound flavours of sweet and luscious savoury red berry fruits are the feature on palate. This has a bright, vibrantly fruity mouthfeel with finesse and underlying concentration. Subtle secondary dried herb and game elements add complexing detail, and the wine follows a fine-grained, textural line to a very long, lingering finish. This is very alive with great vitality and elegance. It has time to go, another 5+ years. A vintage regarded as not having quite the depth. This can be revised to an excellent, if not outstanding one. 18.5/20 Jun 2014 RRP $N/A
