ATA RANGI PN          06


To reveal my intentions: I’m more of a Martinborough man than a Central Otago man; though increasingly I love both. Ata Rangi is the king of Martinborough; and 2006 is a stunning example of its power. This wine is supple; arrestingly long; bold in its blue fruit character; and yet savoury; spicy; and sappy too. The colour is a brilliant dark purple crimson; and the finish of it an intricate arrangement of minerals and tannins. Shape wise; it pulls long; rather than balling through the mid-palate. It’s a new world pinot noir for the new world to be proud of. Drink: 2012-2020. 97 points. Campbell Mattinson;I have had a crack at this particular wine twice now. The first out of big glasses <bnext to the 2006 PHI Pinot>b at an informal tasting; and the second out of little glasses at an informal dinner. I know I am bad and should pay more attention; but no matter which way you slice the old tamarillo; this is outstanding wine that stands up and performs every time.bR >cbRAromas of dark cherry; spice; dark chocolate; violet and a tangy orange peel top note. A bit earthy; fruity and fragrant all in one. On the palate; smooth fine talc-like tannins and a lithe muscular frame with expansive and mouth-filling fruit. Plenty of flavour; but not clumsy or heavy. Dark cherry; berry; spice; undergrowth and tamarillo with a light and very attractive sarsaparilla character adding regional interest. Long and persistent re we finished yet? Are we finished yet?>b I wasted no time buying a few bottles for the cellar. 95+ Points. Gary Walsh; Winorama.com.au; Nov 07 Ata Rangi has the runs on the board; and this top-notch pinot noir reflects vine age and decades of experience. Vibrant cherry aromas and flavours are perfectly matched with high quality French Oak. The palate has a firm but fine structure; demanding at least a couple of years cellaring.
