Ata Rangi, `Crimson` Martinborough Pinot Noir
Country: New Zealand
Alcohol Volume: 13.5%
Tasting Notes: The 2016 very much shows a turning point from vibrant youth to tension and complexity that more mature vines bring. Aromatically this wine offers layers of flavours: violets, dark cherry and plum, notes of bitter chocolate and tobacco with a hint of game. There is a fresh vibrancy on the palate of acid and smooth tannins pulling the wine through to a long, salivating finish.
Style: Elegant, easy drinking
