Ata Rangi founder and avid conservationist, Clive Paton has been involved with the restoration of two spectacular red-flowering native New Zealand trees - mountainloving rata and coastal pohutukawa. His work led him to an association with Project Crimson (an established Charitable Conservation Trust) and inspired the name for his Crimson Pinot Noir. Sales of Crimson help to support this project.

Tasting notes:
'Vines less than 20 years old. Matured in 20% new oak. Light, bright crimson. Not trying to make a sweet Pinot but it’s pretty round fruit. Some delicacy. Still quite youthful.' – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20

'What we find in the 2015 year is a length and drive that belies the age of the vines. More savoury in spectrum than previous vintages, the nose exudes spice, red licorice and a medley of bramble fruit. All carry through onto the palate, with the older vine portion providing real weight and a fine line and length.' – Winemaker

Alc: 13.5% | TA: 5.3 g/L
