Ata Rangi, Crimson Martinborough Pinot Noir

£36.24
Vegan, Organic.

Ata Rangi is owned and run by Clive Paton and his wife Phyll, together with Clive's sister Alison and winemaker Helen Masters. Clive planted the bare, stony five hectare home paddock at the edge of Martinborough in 1980 and, in doing so, was one of a handful of people who pioneered grape growing in the area. Renowned for their Pinot Noir, which is consistently ranked as one of New Zealand's best, Ata Rangi also produces a range of white wines including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.

Crimson is a wine which was inspired by a love of New Zealand's native 'Christmas Trees' the rata and pohutukawa trees. Sales of this wine support Project Crimson, a charitable conservation trust which plants and protects these trees. The Pinot Noir grapes for Crimson are produced from 5-20 year old Martinborough vines in Lismore, Waiora and Walnut Ridge blocks.

Tasting Note:
The nose is complex with aromas of cranberry, raspberry and an earthy spice element. The palate is finely structured with bramble fruit flavours, fine tannins and a savoury finish.
