Ata Rangi Célèbre 2015

Martinborough | $45

Autumn of the 2015 season was stunning, with March bringing cool nights and fine bright days; we were able leave the late ripening varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc hanging on the vine to gain concentration and deep, ripe tannins. The Merlot was planted in the early 1980s and is consistently delivering small berries with intense flavor.

 “The nose is well-proportioned with deeply concentrated and intense aromas of ripe blackberry and black plum fruit melded with notes of dark raspberries entwined with Asian spices, black pepper and minerals, unfolding a fine blackcurrant, cassis and herbal edge, with dark-red floral elements emerging with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is packed with concentrated and deep flavours of ripe blackberries, dark raspberries and plums, with notes of black pepper, Asian spices, licorice, currants and herbs. The fruit is sweetly rich and supported by considerable fine-grained tannin structure with a line of lacy acidity providing tension and drive. The flavours blossom with spices and florals as the wine carries to a long, lingering finish.” Raymond Chan
