Ata Rangi Pinot Noir, Martinborough, New Zealand 1999
‘I’ve never seen a vintage like it before or since,’ says winery owner Clive Paton. Thanks to the conditions plus new winery and equipment and ‘getting a better feel’ for their Pinot, this was the wine that cemented Ata Rangi’s global reputation. Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 1999 is gorgeous, perfumed and seductive. Very pure cherry fruit along with autumn leaves and sweet spice. Beguiling.
