This free-draining prole forces the vine roots to grow deep underground in search of water, giving this Pinot complex aromas and avours, a ne texture with chalk-like nuances, and dense tannins that support the fruit.On the other hand, McCrone Vineyard, planted in 2001 just 800 meters east of the Home Block, has a compact seam of clay that fans out over the gravels of the Terrace to create a cooling eect on the roots. This Pinot delivers a distinctively dierent aroma and avour prole, soft and juicy with exotic spices such as cinnamon and cardamom, supple and lithe with gorgeous primary fruit characteristics. Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2016 (S)Origin: Martinborough, New ZealandTwo outstanding Pinot Noirs from two distinct terroirsCODE10853CODE11260CODE10853CODE11260McCrone VineyardHome BlockEstablished in 1982, Lawson’s Dry Hills was a pioneer grower of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. They began making their own wine in 1992, and have established a leading reputation, winning Trophies for Best New Zealand White and Best New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc at the 2013 London International Wine Challenge for the 2012 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc. Lawson’s has estate vineyards in all three Marlborough sub-re-gions, and employs a full-time viticulture and harvest crew, giving a high level of control for picking fruit at its peak. Awatere Valley:Sediment-rich, free-draining soils with wind-blown loams on top of a base of alluvial gravel and clay.Southern Valleys: Soils largely formed by glacial outwash, with stony gravels, clay, and loess-covered hill slopes, stress the vines to produce fruit with condensed avours. The Waihopai Valley Vineyard is slightly cooler, with large diurnal temperature dierences enabling long hang times.Wairau Valley:A cool production area that extends along the Wairau River basin for 170 kilometers from the Spenser Mountains to the Pacic at Cloudy Bay. Shallow, stony and fast-draining soil patterns along the river terraces, with more clay and silt further from the river.★The viticulture including the ratio of dierent clones in the vineyards and winemaking for these two Pinot Noirs are identical, yet you can clearly discern the dierent aromas and avours produced by the dierent terroir.
