Sam Kim | Wine Orbit 98/100

A magnificent, cellar-aged pinot; the bouquet is totally seductive, displaying spiced plum, dark cherry, game, truffle and cedar characters, followed by a silky-smooth palate that is multi-layered and impressively weighted, while remaining exquisitely elegant and harmonious. The wine offers fabulous fruit purity together with alluring savoury complexity, making it irresistibly delicious. At its best: now to 2026. $75.00. www.atarangi.co.nz. June 2018.


Cameron Douglas 97/100

Complex and alluring bouquet of Pinot Noir led by aromas of stony minerality, a steely haunting layer amidst aromas of red berries and red apple; then vanilla and sweet oak scents. Dry, complex and equally alluring on the palate with layers of dried herb, stony earthy flavours, firm youthful tannins and acidity to match. The core of red berry fruits brings all the elements together into a long and complex finish. Overall balance still to arrive, this wine needs more time please.


Bob Campbell 96/100

Quite a dense, savoury pinot noir with cherry, berry, dried herb, stemmy, floral, violet, mixed spice and anise flavours. It makes a bold statement. A firmly-structured wine with obvious cellaring potential


James Suckling 95/100

A powerful pinot with deep-set darker cherry and plum fruits, sappy and spicy fresh forest aromas. Pomegranate and ripe dark-fleshed peaches add plenty of interest. The palate has a deep, luscious and spicy feel to it with plenty of rich and ripe cherry fruits on offer. This carries a bold ball of tannins in a polished but dense mode. Drink now and for several years to come.

The two-and-a-half hectare McCrone Vineyard was planted in 2001 with Abel, Clone 5 and Dijon clones 115 and 777. This is the fourth release (other vintages are 2008, 2009 and 2011). Dense, rich, flavour-packed pinot noir with black-fleshed plum, spice, floral and a strong savoury/stemmy character that might derive from the use of 30 per cent whole bunches in the fermentation. A complex and powerful wine with cellaring potential.


Parker 92+/100

Like the 2014 Pinot Noir, the 2014 McCrone Vineyard Pinot Noir is a bit leafier in character than the other vintages. It's crisp, linear and tightly wound, with tart cherry fruit balancing the wine's ample weight and richness.


Raymond Chan 19/20

Dark, deep ruby-red colour. The bouquet is intensely deep with complex secondary notes, the nose showing bold, savoury dark red berry fruits with dried herbs, whole bunch stalk lift and nuances of undergrowth. Full-bodied on palate, this has weight and power, with depth and concentration. The fruit is sweetly rich with savoury dark-red berry, cherry and plum notes with dark and dried herbs, stalk elements, and nuances of game and undergrowth. The extraction and structure is considerable, and the acidity balanced and integrated. A fulsome and complex wine already.

The Winefront 96/100

I did a quick tasting of twenty or so Martinborough Pinot Noir…and the venue was the McCrone House, which sits inside the McCrone Vineyard. So I walked outside into the vines to finish the tasting. Dried flower perfume, dried cherry, sappy orange peel. Pow pow powerful, with a bitterness and dark chocolate flavour in with brighter perfumed fruit, chinotto and tannin push the finish out. Really like this. Has an X-factor, a bit of chutzpah, that sets it apart from the pack.
