Ata Rangi Martinborough Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 30-Jun-2014
A warm vintage, wet at the end of the growing season. Dark, deep, even, purple-hued ruby-red, very youthful in appearance. This is tightly bound and classically expressed with fine, primary dark red berry and cherry fruits, along with lifted aromatic floral perfumes, the nose beautifully pure. Very subtle nuances of spicy oak with suggestions of toast show the youth of the wine. Medium-bodied and elegantly concentrated, refined tannin extraction forms the core on palate with tightly bound, dark cherry fruit and violet and dark red floral perfumes providing a gentle sweetness and lusciousness. Fresh, bright, lacy acidity lends vitality and the wine carries to a graceful, lingering finish. This is a beautiful, elegant and balance wine with finesse and grace. A classical Ata Rangi wine. It will develop over the next 7-8+ years. 19.0/20 Jun 2014 RRP $N/A
