Ata Rangi Pinot Noir, Martinborough, New Zealand 2011

Gorgeous summer days and Martinborough’s typically cool nights ensured great ripeness and aromatics and despite a bit of rain just before harvest diluting a bit of intensity, this is still a classic Pinot vintage. The alcohol sticks out a little at the moment, but the Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2011’s ripe cherry fruit flavour is fresh, pure and concentrated with a pretty violet lift.
