More information on wine critics and ratings

Bright purple in colour. Fresh savoury spice and lifted red berry nose with a subtle oak lift. The palate is medium bodied showing soft sweet fruits.

The oak enhancing the mid palate which is extended by the fine clean acid structure. A seamless, creamy textured wine in complete balance.

James Halliday (JH) : 97 Points (2014)
This is stellar. The length, the breadth, the form, the immaculate rollout of tannin. It shows cherry plum, earth, violet and spice but the sum of such humble parts is so much more than that. Milk chocolate from oak simply goes with the flow. We stand in the presence of something resembling greatness.

James Suckling (JS) : 95 Points (2014)
A seamless wine that's very refined, elegant and gently profound, this has a pristine red- and dark-fruited nose that also shows some licorice and gentle spices. Bright, fine tannins frame a juicy, long-term wine. Effortless power; this will live for a very long time. Best from 2025.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 90 Points (2014)
Bloody Hunter shiraz, this wine’s tart flavors taste of wild fruits and crisp herbs. Though the structure may be lean, there’s plush density to the tannins, filling out the fruit with gentleness and lengthening the flavor.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2013)
The hints of menthol and cherry on the nose are appropriately restrained for the style. This medium-bodied wine is still tight and young, but should blossom after 2020, based on the length of its mouthwatering finish.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 88 Points (2013)
Crisp and lively plum and berry flavors have an earthy and mineral side, with dried sage and savory notes on the firm finish. Drink now through 2026. –MW

The wine is floral fruit in youth, which moves towards biscuity characters with age. The palate is generally softer bodied with smoother acids than the Vat 1 and Belford Semillons

Ata Rangi McCrone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015
This wine is a bolder style than Ata Rangi's flagship Pinot Noir. The nose has rich, spicy aromas with a hint of manuka flower. On the palate, velvety tannins are supported by savoury flavours with a juicy and complex finish.
