Another outstanding release from the powerhouse Ata Rangi team. Crimson is Ata Rangi's entry-level pinot and it consistently over-delivers. Previous vintages have been rolling in five star reviews and we expect the 2019 to be no different.
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.
The winery writes "This vintage has the intensity and structure that we love from Martinborough – complex notes of rose petal, blood orange, sandalwood, tamarind and toasted rice entice aromatically while the flavours of cranberry, cinnamon and bergamot tea align with the soft savoury notes of tobacco to taste. This structure makes for a beautifully food-friendly Pinot Noir."
