Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir 2019
- Pinot Noir
- New Zealand, 750ml
Crimson has an enticing nose of dark cherry blended with new season raspberry and wild mulberries. Light touches of smoky clove and exotic spice enhance the rich flavours of sweet red plum and black cherry that burst onto the palate. Very fine, supple tannins carry evenly right to the finish. This wine is utterly charming with an underlying structure that has real weight and power.

20 years ago Ata Rangi named this special Pinot Noir “Crimson” in support of Project Crimson, the charitable trust working to replant and preserve native red-flowering pōhutukawa and rātā trees throughout New Zealand. Ata Rangi founder Clive Paton has planted more than 75,000 trees at the Ata Rangi family’s Bush Block. Ata Rangi continue to support conservation efforts across our region. Crimson Pinot Noir celebrates Ata Rangi's commitment to remain in service to the land and to the ecosystem that sustains us.
Ata Rangi, meaning "dawn sky" or "new beginning" is a small family owned New Zealand winery, located at the Southern end of the North Island. With a big reputation for serious Pinot Noir, founder and patriarch Clive Paton planted his first vines in 1980 and was one of four pioneer winemakers in the Martinborough area.
Alongside Clive, the vineyard is also owned and managed by Clive’s wife Phyll, and sister Alison. The talented trio, together with dynamic winemaker Helen Masters, have made Ata Rangi known for their flagship wine, Pinot Noir. In 2010, this wine was honoured with the inaugural Tipuranga Teitei o Aotearoa or "Grand Cru of New Zealand".
