Rated 92 points by Huon Hooke: "Deep red with a good tint of purple, the bouquet slightly closed, shy and savoury, with latent cherry and earthy, foresty aromas, seemingly unevolved and needing time to fully emerge. The palate is quite firm and solid, with a vein of bitterness from the tannin extraction - which seems part of this label's established style. It's quite structured. Lovely dark-cherry fruit aromas emerge with plenty of swirling."

Nose

An enticing nose of mulberry and bramble fruits complements a spice lift of tamarind paste and crushed sumac berry.

Palate

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.

Background

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.
