HALF BOTTLES: RED

Red - PINOT NOIR, 'Crimson', Ata Rangi. Martinborough, New Zealand (Half Bottle)

2014 PINOT NOIR, 'Crimson', Ata Rangi. Martinborough, New Zealand (Half)

Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: Martinborough is at the southern tip of New Zealand's North Island. A cool area, ideal for Pinot, first made famous by Larry McKenna when at Martinborough Vineyards, and Clive Paton at Ata Rangi. The other key to the area is the high gravel content in the soil
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir aged in French oak (25% new oak) for 9 months
Producer: Clive Paton is the softly-spoken owner of Ata Rangi, pioneer of great New Zealand (not just Martinborough) Pinot Noir. He hosted an impressive Old Bridge wine dinner just last year. Crimson is a new wine inspired by a love of New Zealand's native Christmas Trees, the rata and pohutukawa trees, as depicted on the label. Sales of this wine support the Project Crimson, a charitable conservation trust
Cellar Potential: 2016-2020
Old Bridge Rating: Early-drinking, good value 'second wine' from a great Pinot producer
Press Reviews: "Crimson is supposedly the wine to introduce you to its bigger Ata Rangi estate Pinot. But perversely, you need all of the Pinot knowledge in the world to understand just how special Crimson is." Decanter Magazine, Matthew Jukes
