Description

The McCrone Vineyard is a single vineyard plot owned by Don and Carole McCrone, who also grow Pinot in Oregon. Having known Clive and Phyll at Ata Rangi since 1988, the McCrones bought a neighbouring property and Ata Rangi planted it in 2001 for optimal Pinot production. This 2017 is the eight release off this single vineyard, Ata Rangi holding it back a while longer than their Estate wine, quite possibly due to the tannic structure which is far more formidable than their estate Pinot.

Smells

A distinctive nose of exotic spices, with dried herbs, char, florals, cherries and cedar.

Tastes

Deep and quite structured with some serious tannins and dusty, sandalwood notes through the palate, there's plenty of weight and it's very long and very serious, the product of a perfectly dry summer. A very attractive and weighty wine with a big future in the cellar, it's very enjoyable now with some lamb racks or game meats like duck or venison.
