Every year Ata Rangi Pinot Noir is released and every year I am comfortable to purchase it before I taste it. Why? The quality is always outstanding and the age-ability of the wines is tremendous.
An example: Six months ago we hosted a vertical of Ata Rangi Pinot Noir dating from 2003-2013. Every wine in that line-up was unique and vintage reflective, but also all the wines showed a high level of quality, which I rarely see in older wines from the region. They were structured and nuanced with both power and finesse. It’s real Pinot Noir.
Just recently the 2014 Ata Rangi Pinot Noir was released in Australia. With the release came some spectacular reviews. Bob Campbell, New Zealand’s top wine critic, awarded the 2014 Ata Rangi Pinot Noir a stellar 99 points. He made sure to mention the wine probably deserved 100 points, but he needed to see the wine in years to come. This was the highest score given to a New Zealand Pinot Noir in the 2014 vintage.

Annandale Cellars and Veno were amongst a handful of retailers to receive the tiny allocations that the vintage allowed. I urge the Pinophiles amongst us to avoid hesitation in purchasing this wine for your cellar, it will not hang around for long.
