Ata Rangi Pinot Noir er vingårdens absolutte ikonvin. Den fremstilles af druer fra Ata Rangis ældste vinstokke. Druerne håndhøstes og gennemgår derpå en skånselsløs håndsortering, drue for drue, så det kun er de bedste af de bedste, som anvendes. 30% af druerne der presses er whole closter (hele klaser). Vinen lagres 11 måneder på franske egetræsfade (35% nye) og den aftappes ufiltreret. Duften er stor og kompleks, og byder på raffinerede noter af intens bærfrugt, rose, anis og et strejf af parfume. Smagen leder tankerne i retning af stor rød Bourgogne, og den imponerer med sin kompleksitet og koncentration. Eftersmagen er lang og silkeagtig.En sand Grand Cru fra New Zealand.

Lovely floral aromatics with great acid-fruit tension and energy. This is a beautiful Pinot with layers of flavours of sweet spices, wild raspberry, with herbs in the finish. An elegant wine with great potential to age.
Den korte avis
Ata Rangi bliver i dag af mange betragtet som landets bedste udi pinot noir. Ata Rangi holder i modsætning til trenden i øjeblikket, fast i ideen om et sammenstik af de bedste partier til husets topvin (er pengepungen ikke til de priser, kan man købe Crimson i stedet for). Med flagskibsvinen her bliver det mere alvorligt. Kirsebæreddike, tranebærskind og rødbedesaft. Forbilledlig kombination af jordede noter, stramhed, moden syre, let tanninbid og uendelighed i eftersmagen - nærmest komplet, kom bare an Chambolle-Musigny!

Chalk another notch in the belt because Ata Rangi [Pinot Noir 2008] is at the top of the tree again. Amid ever-increasing competition, its class and pedigree sails from the glass

This is one of Ata Rangi's best ever wines. It has a silken, mouth-filling texture, although the layering of fruit and savoury flavours is nearly as appealing. I'm not sure how they can improve on this wine.
The 2010 Ata Rangi is once again all class and right in the style of fragrant, sweetly perfumed pinot that we've grown to expect from this vineyard. The nose has ripe plum and cherry fruits, deep rose perfume and integrated spicy complexity. Sweet earthy nuances are here, cedar and vanillin too. The palate's enthralling for the sheer plushness and density it delivers, velvet- like and rich, it is also elegant and precise. Tannins are ripe and fine, some gentle firmness showing through in this vintage which I like. They fan and curve through the middle and make a composed, lively leap off the finish. The finish is reminiscent of the perfect gymnastic dismount. Brilliant. Drink in 2016.
A very cool start to the season, with combined heat units for October and November 2009 the lowest we'd recorded since 1992 (when fine ash from the 1991 Mt Pinatubo eruption created cool, overcast conditions for over two years). Flowering was 2-3 weeks late and patchy, with January more overcast than usual. We went into March feeling pretty nervous, but from mid March on, we experienced idyllic weather, with warm, dry, sunny days and cool nights, a pattern that was consistent through to the middle of May. Harvest began two weeks late, with fruit arriving in beautiful condition. GDD 1,060, 10% whole bunch. Darker and more savoury than 2009. Excellent balance of smoky-savoury and fresh dark- red fruit. Cool and full of energy. Dry, silky and so elegant.(JH) Drink 2015-2022
One of the greatest of all New Zealand Wines.
This estate, meaning 'Dawn Sky', makes the most revered pinot noir in New Zealand. In my annual 'The Great New Zealand Pinot Noir Classification' Ata Rangi is a Five Star estate. I have just come back from two weeks in New Zealand, tasting more than 500 wines for this year's Classification, and it is not giving the game away to say that Ata Rangi's star rating is unchanged. The 2010 vintage from this world-class property is the finest vintage I have ever tasted. You must own this wine." Citat Matthew Jukes.
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2010 Pinot Noir's nose is just a little closed giving mulberry and black cherry hints with accents of garrique, violets, mossy bark and some clove hints. Medium bodied, it has great structure with medium to firm fine grained tannins and good but not over-whelming acid freshness complimenting the black and red fruit flavors, finishing with some mineral notes.
Good medium red. Dark aromas of black cherry, black raspberry and licorice. The palate shows very good cut and underlying spine to the flavors of sweet dark fruits complicated by spices and minerals. Densely packed, serious, deep pinot with the minerality and energy for mid-term aging. I'd hold this at least three years.
The Wall Street Journal
So beautifully restrained it is almost criminal to taste this wine so young. With time, the wine, which is lightly textured, reveals a nose of gentle spices and sweet cherry. A really graceful Pinot, it has harmonious, gamy character on the palate with intense chewy tannins.
The Wine Front
Top-Scoring Pinot Noirs from New Zealand" liste juni 2012: "Exotic aromatics of mahogany and sandalwood follow through to supple red licorice, cranberry, cherry and raspberry flavors that are elegant, precise and balanced. Baking spice details of clove and nutmeg persist on the finish. Drink now through 2020.
I've watched this wine develop and mature over the years and have to say it's a peak vintage for this winery. It's now showing tremendous complexity of mellow sweet cherry, rhubarb and spice aromas, and is truly in-the-zone now at eight years of age. A triumph.
When Ata Rangi was recognised by its peers as being the first equal producer of Pinot Noir in this country I thought the honour well deserved. As an early pioneer of top Pinot Noir this small family company has never rested on its laurels but has worked hard to build an even better wine every year. This is one of Ata Rangi's best ever wines. The star feature is a silken, mouth-filling and totally seductive texture although the complex layering of fruit and savoury flavours is nearly as appealing. I find it hard to imagine how they can improve on this wine ... but they will.
Flot duft af sorte kirsebær, kirsebær, skovbær, violer, peber. En tæt flot vin med lang eftersmag. Køligere og mere burgundisk i stilen.
