Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2010
The palate is dense with a sinewy, savoury spine that spreads out to a fine, long, silky finish. An iconic NZ producer.
The 2010 Pinot Noir has a dark, brooding nose with red fruits, notes of star anise and exotic spice. The palate is dense with a sinewy, savoury spine that spreads out to a fine, long, silky finish. The 10/11 growing and ripening season started slowly, with cooler than average temperatures. Even January and February were a little more overcast than usual, but by March we were right into idyllic summer weather, with consistently hot sunny days and cool nights, a pattern that continued to the middle of May. The late, dry summer meant fruit was harvested in top condition. Vine age now shines through year after year, expressed in both the consistency of quality and the distinctive sense of place so evident in Ata Rangi Pinot Noir. Ata Rangi
