Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir 2018 Martinborough
Vibrant, almost exotic red fruited and varietal bouquet of Pinot Noir. Raspberry and plum, crushed dark cherries and velvet roses. Traces of brown baking spices with a mild toasty oak layer add complexity and depth. On the palate - tense, youthful, fresh and dry. Flavours reflect the nose alongside chalky firm tannins, medium+ acidity and a lengthy crunchy finish. I could drink this wine on its own, with food or cellar for another year. You decide. Best from 2020 through 2024+.
