Ata Rangi Pinot Noir Martinborough 2008
This is a serious, muscular, powerful Pinot Noir. Dark brooding plum, cherry-stone aromas and exotic spice lead to a rich, dense palate characterised by firm but supple tannins and a deliciously 'Martinborough’ gamey, savoury complexity. Although subdued on the nose at this early stage, the long, long finish is laden with fruit weight and intensity that speaks volumes of the promise of aromas and flavours yet to unfold - the intrigue and fascination of classic Pinot Noir.
External Reviews for Ata Rangi Pinot Noir Martinborough
WA 92pts - According to the Wine Advocate - The 2008 Pinot Noir is very tight on the nose with notes of blackberry leaf, a touch of raspberry, brambly and a touch of oyster shell, all with great clarity and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with notes of blackberry, raspberry, a touch of blueberry and a life-affirming sense of poise that leads to a mineral-rich finish and tart, dark cherries on the aftertaste. Drink 2011-2017.

This delicious red wine comes from the region of Martinborough, at the southern tip of the North Island of New Zealand. The producers of this Pinot Noir were highly concerned with preserving varietal typicity, and the wine exhibits beautiful redcurrant and red cherry fruit flavors.
