96pointsAta Rangi 2017 Pinot Noir (Martinborough)

From extremely low-yielding, organic vines, this flagship Pinot, which sees 30% whole bunch and a native yeast fermentation, is beautifully expressive. Complex, harmonious and elegant, it ripples with pristine, brambly fruit, dried florals, spices, river stone minerality and a savory, meaty nuance. The palate is silky with crystalline acidity, laced with fine, chalky tannins. Still a baby, this needs a decanter to drink now but will age well through 2040. Christina Pickard
