Ata Rangi Pinot Noir
James SucklingAs ever this has an extra dimension and remains the high watermark for New Zealand pinot noir to be measured against. How do they do it: complete and uncompromised dedication to the cause, combined with an early play to make the most of the available land in a young region, as well as the ability to attract talented and dedicated people such as winemaker Helen Masters to the cause. Already entrancingly complex, the wine has a brambly array of cherry and summer berry fruits in addition to blueberries, some spicy saffron and earthy nuances. It's totally composed and still able to deliver a sense of aromatic purity amid web-like complexity. As you swoon into the first mouthful, it takes total control and is plush and layered with an air of playful luxury. The center billows soft and deceptively airy, finishing in a run of succulent, fresh and satisfying tannins that leave you breathless.
ParkerSavory, herbal and dark-fruited, the 2013 Pinot Noir is medium to full-bodied, quite supple but firm, with a backbone of wiry acids and a long, mouthwatering finish.
Cameron DouglasComplex and beguiling bouquet of red berry fruits, layers of oak and minerality, a light dusting of dried herb and a core of ripeness. On the palate - tense, youthful and poised with flavours of red cherry fruits, mangosteen and currants, some fresh strawberry then keen new oak with fine tannins, light smoky note, plenty of acidity, poise and finish. A lovely wine with oodles of time on its side.
