Another outstanding release from the powerhouse Ata Rangi team.
The proceeds from the Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir help to conserve New Zealand native Rata and Pohutukawa through Project Crimson. So drink knowing you are doing your bit to ensure the iconic kiwi christmas tree is going to be around for future generations.
Raymond Chan writes "Medium-full bodied, the palate is rich and plush with succulently sweet and luscious flavours of ripe dark raspberries, blackberries and plums, unfolding red liquorice and raspberry liqueur layers. The fruit is supported by fine-grained, supple tannins and enlivened by fresh background acidity. The mouthfeel is rounded and approachable, the richness carrying the wine to a soft, fruit-laden finish. This is a rich and succulent, primary-fruited Pinot Noir with fine, supple tannins, a rounded mouthfeel and plenty of vibrant, primary energy and freshness."
