Wine of the Week NZ

Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2016, Martinborough, NZD $80

Elegant, supple and very vibrant pinot noir with seductively layered floral, red rose, cherry, red fruits, dried herb and mixed spice flavours. Very long and linear wine that demonstrated real power delivered with great subtlety. A wonderfully pure pinot noir with a distinctive house/vineyard style and a proven ability to age graciously. (Screwcap)
