Ata Rangi 'Crimson' Pinot Noir

  • Proef: Crimson start met een dieprode kersenkleur, glanzend en met fonkelende tranen. Verfijnd geparfumeerd met rozenblaadjes, pruimen en zwarte kers. In de mond heerlijk sappig en genereus rijp met veel bramen, kersen en een tikkeltje kruidigheid. Een lange, smakelijke afdronk met verfijnde zuren maken deze Pinot Noir vergelijkbaar met de grote Bourgogne (type Chambolle Musigny).

Bob Campbell 94/100

Ata Rangi is one of my favorite pinot noir makers. I taste and buy their iconic, age-worthy pinot noir at every opportunity. However, it is easy to get dazzled by their highly-demanded flagship pinot noir and to overlook their second label wine, which in my view outstrips many more expensive pinot noirs from other highly-regarded producers. The 2016 Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir is less than half the price of the flagship but it certainly isn't half the quality. The quality gap is slightly narrowed now because Crimson is more accessible than the top label, which past vintages clearly demonstrate has the capacity to age magnificently. It is arguable a better buy now if you are seeking a top pinot noir for current drinking.


Raymond Chan 18,5/20

Moderately deep, cerise-ruby red with youthful purple hues. This is ripe, up-front and juicy with sweet, aromatic fruits, with dark raspberries and cherries and plum notes. This is easy to access and is inviting with its sweetness. Beautifully and fully ripe on palate, the fruit is sweet and juicy, with raspberries and plums. The fruit is underlined by fine tannin extraction providing noticeable structure and grip. The primary fruit as I saw when last tasted is giving way to the extract. The acidity lends freshness and vibrancy still. Hand-picked fruit, clones 5, 10/5, Abel and Dijon clones, vines 5-20 y.o., destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with a high proportion of whole berries to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak.


James Suckling 93/100

A very handy edition of Crimson pinot noir in 2016, this has a suave and grown-up feel to it. Innately complex and layered aromas, flavors and textures. This wine is packed with ripe red cherry and poached red plum fruits as well as inherently spicy, perfumed and earthy attributes. The way in which it rolls out on the palate is just superb; a silky, succulent and seductive red.


The Winefront 94/100

Martinborough pinot noir at the hand of one of the masters. “The name Crimson is inspired by a love of rata and pohutakawa, New Zealand’s stunning red-flowering native trees. Sales of this wine support the Project Crimson charitable conservation trust”. 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.


Jamie Goode 93/100

No enzymes, added yeasts, minimal sulphur, no fining and filtering. Looking to make a wine with some savouriness. Younger vines, 16 or 17 years old. Very fruity with bright raspberry and cherry fruit with a bit of grip. Nice crunchiness and purity here. Deliciously focused and fruity.

Sam Kim 94/100

Youthful, yet impressively harmonious and complex, the wine offers lifted aromas of dark cherry, raspberry, game and clove with hints of thyme and floral notes. The palate delivers lovely weight and roundness, beautifully complemented by silky texture and pristine fruit flavours as well as subtle savoury complexity, finishing long and satisfying. A delectable offering showing charm and delight. At its best: now to 2021.
