Beskrivelse

Ata Rangi Pinot Noir

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. Vinen lagres 12 måneder på franske egetræsfade 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. Dekantér gerne vinen 1-2 timer før servering og giv dig tid til at nyde de mange lag og nuancer i vinen. En sand Grand Cru fra New Zealand.

Anmeldelser

  • 93P - Decanter 09.10.2018:" An open, easy to approach wine despite having a focussed core of intense fruit. The mouthcoating tannins have a fine pinprick-like texture and, in combination with succulent acidity, create a finely drawn-out conclusion. This is a very relaxed wine with a savoury expression that lingers on the medium-length finish."
  • 96P - Tyson Steltzer Wines of the Year 2017 Rapport:" A pinot noir of elegance and refinement that encompasses a core of deep complexity, founded on black cherry and blackberry fruit, even a shadow of cassis, rippling with layers of exotic spice. From the family-owned estate's oldest vines planted from 1980, this is a wine of silky, seductive structure, yet confidently enduring tannins, filling a palate of impeccable line and undeviating length. A brilliant, seductive and delightful Ata Rangi"
  • 96P - James Suckling December 2016: "As ever this has an extra dimension and remains the high watermark for New Zealand pinot noir to be measured against. How do they do it: complete and uncompromised dedication to the cause, combined with an early play to make the most of the available land in a young region, as well as the ability to attract talented and dedicated people such as winemaker Helen Masters to the cause. Already entrancingly complex, the wine has a brambly array of cherry and summer berry fruits in addition to blueberries, some spicy saffron and earthy nuances. It's totally composed and still able to deliver a sense of aromatic purity amid web-like complexity. As you swoon into the first mouthful, it takes total control and is plush and layered with an air of playful luxury. The center billows soft and deceptively airy, finishing in a run of succulent, fresh and satisfying tannins that leave you breathless. Drink now to 2025+."
  • 94P - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate januar 2017: "Medium ruby colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir gives plenty of earthy, red berry- laced characters on the nose with notes of red currants, raspberry leaves and cranberries as well as nuances of lavender, wild thyme, mossy tree bark and forest floor, plus a waft of fungi. The light to medium-bodied palate provides great intensity with red berry and earth layers supported by finely grained tannins and finishes long with some mineral hints."
  • 99P, 5 stjerner og guld - Bob Campbell MW juni 2016: "Dense, complex pinot noir in a typical Ata Rangi style, with a nice mix of fruit and savoury characters. Dark-fleshed plum, black cherry with a suggestion of floral, mixed spice and sweet herbs. Spectacular wine with plenty of power and an incredibly lengthy finish. More accessible than the previous vintage was at this stage but showing great cellaring potential. The best Ata Rangi pinot noir I've tasted."
  • "...New Zealand's most revered Pinot Noir producers, Ata Rangi, Dry River and Felton Road." Jancis Robinson
  • "Ata Rangi is the crowned King of New Zealand Pinot Noir. It has been making stunning wine for a long time; experience, vine age and a great vineyard site giving a competitive edge." Decanter, July 2011
  • "The standard bearer for Martinborough and still the finest Pinot of its style, this is a wine that has so much complexity that you must treat with the respect it commands. A modern-age trailblazer." Skrev Decanter om 2007 Ata Rangi Pinot Noir.
  • "One of the greatest of all New Zealand Wines" skriver Michael Cooper's Buyer's Guide to New Zealand (Den New Zealandske vinbibel)
  • "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." ... more, Nick Stock, Penguin Australia Good Wine Guide 2010 - og 2009 Pinot Noir har vundet igen I same Guide I 2011!
  • "If you had to choose a single label to prove that New Zealand can make rich, complex Pinot Noir, Ata Rangi would be a top contender - arguably the top contender. Ata Rangi Pinot Noir is an aristocratic marriage of power and finesse" Michael Cooper 2008 Wine Atlas of New Zealand
  • "It's true. Ata Rangi has the Midas touch with all of its wines" Bob Campbell MW, Home & Entertaining 07
  • "I have long regarded Ata Rangi as the southern hemisphere's pre- eminent pinot noir producer." Philip Rich, Australian Financial Review Dec 06
  • "Ata Rangi is easily the most consistent producer in Australasia, making complex, age-worthy wines." Tim White, Australian Financial Review Feb 07

Producent beskrivelse

Ata Rangi i Martinborough

Ata Rangi betyder "ny begyndelse" på maori, og var en velvalgt titel til det projekt, som Clive Paton tog hul på i 1980. Naboerne rystede på hovedet af ham, da han solgte sit kvæg og i stedet gik rundt og proppede stiklinger af vinstokke ned i den stenede mark i udkanten af Martinborough-landsbyen. Men Clive Paton blev ved med sit foretagende. Og stiklingerne var såmænd kloner af Pinot Noir-vinstokke fra Domaine de la Romanée-Conti!

Finesse og kompleksitet

I dag regnes Ata Rangi for en af New Zealands bedste vingårde, og Martinborough er et af landets mest eksklusive vindistrikter. Grunden til distriktets succes skal dels findes i det kølige klima, som varmemæssigt placerer sig mellem Loire-dalen og Bourgogne, og dels i den stenede, veldrænede og magre jordbund, som tvinger vinstokkene til at yde deres ypperste. Ata Rangis vine er finesserige og komplekse, og det er netop essensen af Martinboroughs formåen.

Kiwi Grand Cru foran Romanée-Conti

3 gange er Ata Rangi løbet med 1. pladsen og det eftertragtede Trophy for bedste Pinot Noir på International Wine and Spirit Competition i London, samt høstet et utal af andre guldmedaljer i Australien og Asien. Ata Rangi blev som en af kun to vingårde udnævnt til "Kiwi Grand Cru" på en stor Pinot Noir konference i hovedstaden Welleington i 2010. I en Pinot Noir smagning i januar i 2011 arrangeret af Jancis Robinson blev 1991 Ata Rangi valgt som bedste vin foran 1992 Romanée St-Vivant fra Domaine de la Romanée-Conti ... hvilket siger ikke så lidt om vinens lagringspotentiale.
