Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 750ml

One of the greatest of all New Zealand wines .The grapes are drawn from numerous sites, including the estate vineyard, planted in 1980, and the vines, ranging up to 29 years old. The 2009 was voted NZ's Top NZ Pint in the Good Australian Wine Guide and a 92/100 from Parkers Wine Advocate. Just released the 2010 is looking superb "Dark cherry melds with bright, lifted red fruit aromas and hints of spice in this exotic 2010 Pinot Noir. Floral notes are present too; old-fashioned violets and a touch of rose. This vibrant pinot has a sinuous, savoury spine of tannin that spreads out to a long, silky finish. Significant vine age, especially from the 30 year-old blocks, expresses itself in depth, breadth and complexity of character; a distinctive ‘sense of place’ so evident in Ata Rangi Pinot Noir. Vine age also contributes markedly to the consistency of quality year after year."
