Listed in the 2019 Fine Wines of New Zealand list.

5 Stars & 97 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

The palate displays outstanding concentration and persistency, together with refined texture and flowing mouthfeel, finishing wonderfully long and seductive. It’s multi-layered and perfectly proportioned with a stunning line and length. At its best: 2022 to 2033. RRP $75.00Aug 2020." Drink 2022 - 2033

Bright, succulent, ripe red fruits create an inviting first impression of this classic Ata Rangi Pinot Noir.  As the wine unfolds, delicate floral aromas emerge - think of dark, velvety roses - a fitting image for a wine with such luxuriously silky textural qualities. Tannins are very fine, very supple, allowing the wine to show lovely primary fruit on the nose at this early stage. The long, long finish is laden with fruit weight and intensity that promises rewards from careful cellaring.

Ata Rangi (Martinborough) 2019 Crimson Pinot Noir

93 POINTS - Cameron Douglas MS camerondouglasms.com
"Youthful, vibrant, fresh and lively bouquet with aromas of cherries and plums, dried herbs and silty soil layers, a fine lees and wood spice aromatics. Overall - vibrant, youthful and high energy. On the palate - dry, youthful, plenty of texture from tannin and acidity, bright young red fruit flavours contrast the texture and a vibrant youthful mouthfeel overall. Best drinking from 2022 through 2028+."

Winery note
"20 years ago we named this special Pinot Noir “Crimson” in support of Project Crimson, the charitable trust working to replant and preserve native red-flowering pōhutukawa and rātā trees throughout New Zealand.

Crimson is our selection of parcels from younger Pinot Noir vines from our various vineyards on the Martinborough Terrace. In their youth, vines tend to be more fruit expressive, gaining more complexity around 15-20 years.

This vintage has the intensity and structure that we love from Martinborough – complex notes of rose petal, blood orange, sandalwood, tamarind and toasted rice entice aromatically while the flavours of cranberry, cinnamon and bergamot tea align with the soft savoury notes of tobacco to taste. This structure makes for a beautifully food-friendly Pinot Noir."

Beach House (Hawkes Bay) 2018 Montepulciano

Montepulciano is an Italian grape variety grown in the Abruzzi region of Central Italy. This block of Montepulciano grape vines have adapted remarkably well to the Gimblett Gravels site and the resulting wines have produced myriad Gold medals and Trophy’s to prove it!

Cherries, cranberries and dark chocolate with a touch of cedar are evident on the nose whilst the palate is intense and fruit driven. Bold, bright, boysenberries interplay with cedar and spice coming from the fine grained French oak. Currently delicious, but would easily cellar well into the 2020’s. But who can wait that long? … Seriously?

Beach House (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Merlot Cab Franc

Winery description
"The Beach House Merlot Cabernet Franc blend is a brand new wine in our portfolio. This vintage we trialled adding some Cabernet Franc to our Merlot and low and behold! A new wine was born. The fruit was hand-picked, de-stemmed and fermented separately in small open topped vats where they were gently hand plunged and pumped over to aid in extracting the maximum amount of flavour and colour from the berries. The wine spent 11 months in fine French oak. The Merlot Franc screams black forest cake with loads of dense plums and chocolate. Soft and plush across the palate but with plenty of weight and length, this will pair perfectly with slow cooked beef cheeks. Will drink nicely well into the 2020’s"

Beach House (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Syrah

Winery Note
"2019 was an exceptional vintage right across the board, but the one variety that seems to benefit most from these hot and dry vintages is undoubtedly Syrah.
Our 2019 Syrah was handpicked on April 5th in pristine condition with the infamous ‘dimple’ effect (caused by dehydration within the berries) evident right across the Syrah block. Once picked, the grapes were de-stemmed into an open topped fermenter and left to undergo wild fermentation. The wine was gently plunged and pumped over throughout fermentation to aid flavour and colour extraction. The wine spent a total of 27 days on skins before it was pressed off into French oak barrels consisting of 33% new oak. The wine was then left to age for 12 months in barrel

Boysenberries and blueberries alongside subtle cedar and spice are apparent on the nose whilst the palate is concentrated and powerful with a strong dark berry core. This is a strong example of Gimblett Gravels Syrah from an outstanding vintage."
