A rare, small-production, single vineyard Pinot Noir from the renowned Ata Rangi estate located in Martinborough, North Island New Zealand.
The McCrone vineyard is slightly cooler than Ata Rangi's other sites and has a vein of clay running through it resulting in a distinctively silky and soft wine with rounded tannins. An intense bouquet on the nose of red berry and cherry fruits that follow through onto the palate with plum, dried herb, liquorice and spice notes. A finely structured, well balanced, complex and serious wine.
96/100 - Bob Campbell
