This Grand Cru Pinot Noir from New Zealand’s iconic producer @ata _rangi is simply sublime. It’s the result of the legendary gumboot clone, a single Pinot Noir cutting taken from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in Burgundy, smuggled into New Zealand in the mid-1970’s. This legend provides both pedigree and a degree of mystery to the wine.⁣ Distinctly pinot noir on the nose with lifted florals, red roses, delicious cherries, spices and savouriness all in one. You could sit and smell this for days... To taste, it’s a dream pinot. Refined, medium bodied, very long, encompassing power and finesse all at once. It’s a complex wine for sure as the dark cherry, dried fruit and herby almost stalky flavours unite and seductive your tastebuds. There’s a real energy about this wine which the flavours, acidity and tannins express from the moment you smell right through to the long, long, finish. Simply stunning!⁣ Let me know what you think of this New Zealand gem! And if you believe the legend...⁣ #pinotnoir #newzealand #martinborough #winenot #winewinewine #wineoclock #winestudy #winelife #wineoftheday #winelovers #winenight #winestagram #winetasting #wineblog #wset #winenot #wineporn #rolex #oysterperpetual #atarangi #grandcru #winelife #winedown #wset #sommelier
