Ata Rangi Martinborough Pinot Noir 2002

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 30-Jun-2014
An average season, tending cooler in heat, and wetter, providing red fruited, ‘edgy’ wines. Lighter ruby-red colour with a touch of garnet and brick. This has a light, fresh nose with some leafiness and secondary dried herb notes to the red berry fruit and floral core. A hint of reduction is noticeable on bouquet. Medium-bodied and elegant in proportion, supple, sweet and bright red fruits show with lusciousness and juiciness on the front palate. The tannin extraction is modest, and integrated with the fruit depth, the mouthfeel quite harmonious and balanced, with good acid in the background, carrying the palate line. The flavours recede, leaving a light, accessible, lively finish. This is a wine of prettiness and charm, showing some cooler elegance. Drinking well now and over the next 4-5 years. 17.5+/20 Jun 2014 RRP $N/A
