Ata Rangi (Martinborough) 2020 Pinot Noir

98 points James Suckling,

Winery notes
Looking back at the seasonal notes of the 2020 vintage the repeating theme is `typical’. Temperature, rainfall and yields were all we could hope for in an ideal season in Martinborough.  It was a pleasure to harvest clean, impeccable fruit that had a clear, calm voice of the region and vintage. Made from only our oldest pinot noir plantings on the Martinborough Terrace, this wine is the best of six small vineyards all within 500 m of our winery.  The result is a complex, elegant wine, beautifully perfumed in the classic Ata Rangi style.

A full fragrant nose of juniper, cranberry and red plum meld with spice and herbal notes of cardamon, pink peppercorn and dried oregano. Bright and supple on entry, with finely coating tannins that extend the full length of the palate. This release exudes confidence and poise and is the perfect touchstone for our single vineyard releases.

Ata Rangi (Martinborough) 2022 Crimson Pinot Noir

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 5-25 years.

2021 was a very small yielding vintage resulting in wines with intensity and concentration. The small compact bunches gave a wonderful blend of bright fruit aromas and more dark seductive notes of dark cherry, thyme and mulberry. The palate opens to more savoury notes of soy, tahini and burnt orange, which gives a depth of flavour. Combined with fresh acidity that gives energy and fine tannins that drive a sustaining finish. Only small quantities made, our Crimson 2021 shows the structure and drive of a small vintage in Martinborough."

Devils Staircase (Otago) 2022 Pinot Noir

Winery note

"Sourced from several Central Otago vineyards, the Devil's Staircase Pinot Noir takes the willing down into the realm of decadence and Bacchanalian delights. Vinification: 18-25 days on skins. Rapid warm ferments, matured in tank to retain bright fruit. No oak influence.
Sensual with lashings of dark fruit, sinfully succulent and devilishly good. Aromas of black Doris plums, blueberries and dark cherries. A very fruity, rich and supple palate with long smooth finish and soft tannins."

Gibbston Valley (Central Otago) 2022 China Terrace Pinot Noir

Gold Medal – NZ Organic Wine Awards 2022
Winery notes 
"Gently fragrant red and dark fruits mix with anise and spice on the nose. The palate is light, showcasing attractive flecks of red fruit with shimmering sappy minerals. The wine’s grace and natural delicacy are offset by its very long finish. Beguiling and worth taking time over. Beautiful drinking for the next 5 years.

Drawing from Gibbston Valley’s most intriguing vineyards, the Single Vineyard range gives full voice to site. Planted in 2001, the China Terrace Vineyard is located in the Bendigo subregion. Gently sloped and north facing, it has 4 clones of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay planted over some 7 hectares. Being over 320m, it retains a coolness relative to Bendigo’s natural warmth. This, and the complex accumulation of loess, clay and schist in its soil, gives wines of fresh, bright complexity. China Terrace Pinot Noir was harvested ten days later than the lower altitude Bendigo sites. The fruit was in great condition at low sugar levels. We incorporated a range of whole cluster and maceration times, from 14-28 days, depending on the extent of whole cluster, into the ferments. The wine was pressed to barrel for 10 months, with 20% new oak used. The final blend has 33% whole cluster overall."

Gibbston Valley (Central Otago) 2022 Glenlee Pinot Noir

"Glenlee is a Pinot Noir that comes from a vineyard of one man’s dreams. Californian visionary Gary Andrus has passed on, but his belief in close planting Burgundian principles results in a vineyard legacy: low crops of intense fruit – and sore knees for anyone who works there! The wine is a thrilling expression of site and method." Christopher Keys, Winemaker

Gibbston Valley (Central Otago) 2022 School House Pinot Noir

95 Points - Stephen Wong, Wine Sentience
95 points - Cameron Douglas MS

Winery description
"All clones were separated into multiple small batch fermentations. With the cool vintage and very low berry count, no whole clusters were included. The fruit’s natural intensity allowed a very gentle cap management to be employed. Following indigeneous fermentation, the wine was pressed to barrel (20% new), where it remained for 10 months before bottling. Typically alluring nose, darker violets and crushed red petal. The palate begins with a demurely lush textural expansion, before snapping through a svelte mid, and strikingly mineral finish. The 2020 School House Pinot Noir will cellar comfortably for 5-10 years."

Main Divide (Canterbury) 2021 Pinot Noir

94 Points - James Suckling
"Very fresh with sliced strawberries, hazelnut, cappuccino, and biscuit character yet always subtle. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a nice acid background running through the wine."

Winery note
"Upon release it has a bright ruby hue. The nose is soft and inviting, slowly unfurling with nuances of tamarillo, pomegranate and gogi berry, interlaced with touches of vanilla, woodsmoke, lavender and an earthy, savoury underlay. The palate is sweetly fruited and supple, with plush polished tannins and a ripe, spice driven mouthfeel. An ethereal and elegant wine, coupled with a rounded body and splash of refreshing acidity that provides harmony and length, flowing perfectly through to its long, rewarding finish."

Maude (Central Otago) 2022 EMW Pinot Noir

Winery description

"A celebration of two blocks of mature Pinot Noir from the Mt Maude Vineyard. As the name suggests, the blocks face opposite directions. Made in a different style - 100% whole cluster, clone 10-5, often only one pigaege during the ferment - definitely a unique winemaking twist on Pinot production. A bewitching perfume, paler in colour yet full, luscious and complex. Love it or hate it, this Pinot Noir certainly creates some debate."

Maude (Otago) 2022 Pinot Noir

Listed in the 2019 Fine Wines of New Zealand list

winery note
"Maude’s Pinot Noir combines fruit from 5 sub–regions within Central Otago, each region contributed uniquely to the blend. Fermented very traditionally in open topped tanks, hand plunged, indigenous yeasts with a portion of whole bunch in each fermenter to create complexity. A month on skins for tannin development prior to gentle pressing through our basket press, then maturation in French oak barriques for 10 months before bottling. The result; a complex dark and brooding wine with aromas and flavours of black fruits, violets and wild thyme. 

Blackcurrant, bramble, dark cherry, plum, smoke, velvet. A savoury and structural expression of Central Otago Pinot Noir where precision and detail replace volume and mass."

The wine has a vibrant carmine hue. Its aromas and flavours are a complex interplay of fruity and savoury elements, suggesting cherries, raspberries and blackberries, intermingled with roast game, grilled mushrooms, black olives, liquorice and coffee. There is a dense core of fruit in the mouth that is supported by a backbone of firm, ripe tannins which flow evenly through the palate and should help the wine age gracefully.
