Ata Rangi Pinot Noir – fair and reasonable in Singapore

Thought I would check out the Ata Rangi pinot noir to see what’s on offer in Singapore.

2008 / Ata Rangi / Martinborough / Pinot Noir – It’s a Kiwi icon, and despite some variability in some years, it’s up there with the best that New Zealand produces. Bob Campbell rates this wine at 96 points and it looks like it retails in New Zealand for around the NZ$72 mark. My quick slide rule calculation says I’d expect it to sell in Singapore at around S$84. Let’ see:

The Cellar Door – S$79
Wine Exchange Asia – S$80
Crystal Wines – S$97 (Member price S$92.15, case price S$89.24)

Looks like you can get it on a pretty good comparative basis then.

    We have a special coming out on the whole range from Ata Rangi with the 2008 Pinot being sold for S$69 net per bottle. I am considering a deeper case discount but have not finalised it.
