Ata Rangi 2014 McCrone Pinot Noir
Winery : Ata Rangi
The McCrone Vineyard was planted in 2001. Clonal material is a mix of the Ata Rangi Abel clone, Dijon clones and Clone 5. The vineyard was originally owned by Don and Carole McCrone who also owned a 10 acre pinot noir vineyard in Yamhill, Oregon. Clive Paton and the Ata Rangi team developed the Martinborough block for the McCrones and later purchased the vineyard. The wine is always released with at least four years bottle age.
Michele's notes: Brilliant fruit, spicy, meaty, tangy, savoury, intriguing. Terrific.
