Nine months in French oak (20% new).
An enticing nose of mulberry and bramble fruits complements a spice lift of tamarind paste and crushed sumac berry.
The 2017 season was cooler than average, delivering wines of complexity and vibrant acid structure. The palate is long and textural with a thread of fine tannins.
Ata Rangi founder Clive Paton is an avid conservationist, determined to help restore New Zealand's native forests to their former glory. His work led him to an association with Project Crimson, an established Charitable Conservation Trust focused on saving two spectacular red-flowering native trees - mountain-loving rata and the closely related, coastal pohutukawa, also known and loved as New Zealand's own "Christmas tree". Ata Rangi has now sponsored Project Crimson for over a decade. Sales of Crimson Pinot Noir help to spread the word of their work and Ata Rangi also donates cash for community planting projects.
