Ata Rangi McCrone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013 - 96 points Review by Gourmet Traveller Wine
The two-and-a-half hectare McCrone Vineyard was planted in 2001 with Abel, Clone 5 and Dijon clones 115 and 777. This is the fourth release (other vintages are 2008, 2009 and 2011). Dense, rich, flavour-packed pinot noir with black-fleshed plum, spice, floral and a strong savoury/stemmy character that might derive from the use of 30 per cent whole bunches in the fermentation. A complex and powerful wine with cellaring potential. (Posted on 4/01/2017)
Ata Rangi McCrone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013 - 18.5/20 pts Review by Raymond Chan | October 2016
Even ruby-red colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. This has a well-bound and finely concentrated, intense bouquet of dark-red berry and cherry fruits interwoven with subtle, savoury dried herb, earth, nutty and mineral complexities, unveiling nuances of spice, liquorice, and violet florals. The nose is still fresh, vibrant and lively, and just beginning to show secondary complexities. Medium-bodied, the palate is well-proportioned with deep and intense, tightly bound flavours of savoury dark red berry and cherry fruit complexed by subtle dried herb, herb and earthy layers. The palate has a refined grip, structure and linearity, with balanced, integrated acidity, and the textures carry the wine to a long, finely concentrated finish of savoury red berry and cherry fruit. This is a well-proportioned, tightly bound, fine-and seriously structured, savoury red-fruited Pinot Noir just beginning to show secondary complexities. Serve with coq au vin and casseroles over the next 6-8 years. The fourth release of a ‘McCrone’ vineyard Pinot Noir. Clones Abel, 5, 115 and 777 from the 2.43 ha ‘McCrone’ vineyard in Regent Street, vines planted 2001, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine on skins up to 21 days and aged 11 months in 20% new French oak barriques.
