There's a seam of clay soils which thread their way across the predominantly alluvial gravels of Martinborough Terrace. McCrone is planted to the distinctly cooler climes on this unique vein, stimulating the vines to concentrate flavours and line the lucky grapes with velvety satin tannins. McCrone Pinot Noir is set somewhat apart from the enduring Ata Rangi style, defined by a lively cast of fruit characters and invigorating flow of energy which flows along the length of palate, its elegance and structure make for a mesmerising, engaging wine.
TASTING NOTES
Deep purple colour. A more floral and elegant expression, dark cherry melds with bright, lifted red fruit aromas and hints of spice. Baked raspberries, star of anise and exotic spice, cinnamon and cardamom, old fashioned violets and a touch of rose. Vibrant, a sinuous, savoury spine of tannin that spreads out to a long, silky finish. Consider decanting an hour or two before service.

About Ata Rangi Wines
Clive Paton planted the originally bare, stony 12-acre home paddock at the edge of the Martinborough village in 1980, one of a handful of people who pioneered grape growing in Martinborough
Ata Rangi means new beginning or dawn sky. The site was a barren 5-hectare paddock when Clive Paton bought it in 1980. He was one of a handful of winemaking pioneers in Martinborough, then a forgotten rural settlement, who were attracted to the area by three key features - the localised, free-draining shingle terrace some 20 metres deep, the lowest rainfall records of anywhere in the North Island, and the proximity to the capital city of Wellington, just an hour away. Clive, who'd farmed in the area, knew the land well. He chose mainly red varieties - Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah - and set out in pursuit of world class wines. Pinot Noir's potential shone from the start - the early wines widely appreciated for their texture and for their pure fruit expression of the variety. Ata Rangi»
