Elegant and quite complex Pinot Noir with tight, powerful cherry/berry fruit flavours and an underlying sappy, savoury mineral character that lifts the wine into another quality realm. I was reminded how well these wines develop while enjoying a bottle of 2009 the previous evening. In an ideal world this wine would be released in another two years time. A classic Ata Rangi Pinot from a good vintage.

The 2011 Ata Rangi pinot is an exercise in composure and restraint in a warmer vintage. This is a tight-wound edition that will deliver untold complexity as it builds over many years ahead, showing a wealth of bright cherry pinot noir aromas, gentle brackeny undergrowth, sweet herbs, leafy nuances and deeply integrated cedary oak. The palate has compact layers of tannin that build tempo and shape in elegant style. The quality is evident with less of the gloss and fleshy overlay that this wine often carries, more emphasis on structure this time around; robust and savory. Terrific depth and presence, it will develop for some time. Drink in 2017. - Nick Stock

Pale to medium ruby in color, the 2011 Pinot Noir has an intensely perfumed nose with abundant floral scents of violets alongside pomegranate and cranberries, lavender and some earthy aromas. Medium-bodied and offering a good intensity of fruit, it has a medium level of fine tannins, balanced acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2021+. 93+ - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Vivid aromatics of toasted cumin, fresh loam and spicy tobacco set up a solid framework for the fleshy black cherry and plum flavors, delivering a pleasant push of flavors on the finish. Drink now through 2023. – MW
