"94 Points. It isn’t the flagship pinot from Ata Rangi but boy is this a powerful wine. Impressive to say the least. This is muscular and dense, in a varietal context, with satsuma plum, steel, black cherry and campfire notes bleeding gradually into sweet spice and stem. It’s as intricate as it is integrated. It’s primed with tannin, all spicy and ripe, and it still manages to fan ample flavour out through the finish. It’s all quite remarkable, really.
