Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir 2017

$37.00 $33.30

Crimson is our selection of fruit from younger parcels of vines from our various vineyards on the Martinborough Terrace. 2016 marks 36 years on the land at Ata Rangi, our younger vines now aged from 5-20 years. In their youth, vines tend to be more fruit expressive, gaining more complexity with time. The 2016 very much shows a turning point from vibrant youth to tension and complexity that more mature vines bring. Aromatically this wine offers layers of flavours: violets, dark cherry and plum, notes of bitter chocolate and tobacco with a faint whiff of rabbit guts. There is a fresh vibrancy on the palate of acid and smooth tannins pulling the wine through to a long, salivating finish. Cellaring 5 to 10 years.

Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2015

$76.00 $68.40

 

Only the oldest parcels of fruit are used in this, our premium Pinot Noir. The fabled Abel clone, allegedly smuggled from Burgundy in the mid-70s, makes up 40% of the blend. The result is a very complex, structured wine, beautifully perfumed in the classic Ata Rangi style. Exotic spice of star anise and sandalwood layer with dark cherry and rose petal on the nose. As is a hallmark of our Pinot, a savoury herbal note reminiscent of oregano offsets more overt fruit characters. The palate is bright, fluid and focused. Fine tannins build through the mid palate carrying the wine to a long elegant finish. Cellaring 10 to 20 years.

Ata Rangi Sauvignon Blanc 2018

$25.00 $23.75

On the nose, there’s an enticing mix of spiced apple pie, cut grass, melon and fennel seed. Through the palate, the on-skins and whole bunch portions add texture and weight, with notes of candied lemon and cardamom; a fresh, tangy entry which develops into a creamy, savoury finish. Cellaring potential now and next 10 years.

A classic wine of Gladstone terroir.  This year maintains the standard with the wine’s mouth filling richness and intensity.  The palate continues to be classic with traditional wine making techniques unchanged.  Regular lees stirring in best French barriques is enhanced by secondary fermentation in Springtime.  Toasty oak with beautiful peaches and cream.  A touch of minerality, but with a silky finish.  Excellent balance.

Cottier Estate Pinot Noir 2014

$29.50 $26.55

The small quantities of fruit used to create Cottier Pinot Noir have created a delicious wine with deep intensity. Complexity is added with subtle overtones of savoury oak, the result of 12 months in the finest French barriques. Deep, bright ruby red. Light berry fruits and redcurrants on the nose, with a hint of vanilla. Juicy dark fruits on the palate with a smooth, warm mouthfeel. A measured touch of oak provides a pleasant balance to the fruit flavours, offering a wonderfully smooth finish.

Cottier Estate Unoaked Chardonnay 2014

$22.50 $20.25

Before the palate sensation, the aromas display ripe and fruity peach, melon and a little citrus. These aromas are in turn accentuated by the taste experience of fresh, textured ripe fruit, without the sometimes intrusive complexity of an oak overlay. An elegant wine, with a long and seamless finish.
