Ata Rangi Martinborough Pinot Noir 2010 13.8%
N: Youthful and vibrant with gentle herbs that underpin a power house of precise red fruit bouquet. The oak signature is reflective of the youth - obvious, but in balance.
P: Dry, medium+ intensity with power and impact. "An iron fist in a velvet glove" fits this wine perfectly. Medium+ complexity and acidity with a longish finish. Very well made.
