Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2010

I’ve been drinking a little bit more Pinot Noir than usual recently as part of my programme of continual self-improvement…

Bright cherry, a bit of sap, roses and vanilla oak. Light on its feet, playful and frisky (as a young wine), with an appealing sweet juiciness and spiciness that’s just so seductive. Admire the gentle but controlling tannins and perky freshness, though its persistence and length is what marks it out as a Pinot Noir of the highest quality. Give it a little more time in bottle to gain additional complexity and you’ll not be disappointed. Completes a trio of excellent vintages from this great New World producer.
