Ata Rangi Pinot Noir, Martinborough, New Zealand 2013

Winery founder Clive Paton says 2013 has been called the vintage of a decade, perhaps the vintage of the past 30 years, but ‘time will tell’. Certainly the vintage conditions were near perfect, giving ‘pristine fruit and perfect balance’. Rich, deep, pure and concentrated, with hints of almond, violet and sweet spice to the juicy cherry fruit. Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2013 has great length and acidity. Sacrilegious to drink it now, despite its deliciousness.
