Ata Rangi Celebre 2014

55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc from vineyards on the Martinborough Terrace, close to the Ata Rangi winery.

Pre-fermentation maceration lasted 4 to 6 days. An oxidative splash racking took place during fermentation. Fermentation temperatures reached 33°C and maceration on the skins lasted for 25 days before pressing. Uninoculated malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. Aged for 17 months in 20% new oak barriques.

Winemaker's Comments

Célèbre has always had its own distinctive style as a bright, high-energy red with real concentration, and a rich, mouth-filling texture. While young, the 2014 is showing abundant aromatics with ripe blueberry, boysenberry and redcurrant notes meeting more exotic notes of star-anise. Long, fine, savoury tannins across the palate and the bracken-like earthiness from the Cabernet portions builds complexity, while the Syrah brings spice and fresh balanced acidity to the finish.
