The Pinot Gris grapes come from the Lismore, Walnut Ridge and Hamden vineyards, which achieve their optimum flavour profile towards the end of the growing season. As a result, the team harvests this varietal fairly late to obtain a wine closer to the richer style of Pinot Gris produced in Alsace. Vibrant aromas of guava and pink grapefruit mingle with pineapple and apple strudel on the nose. The palate is smooth and velvety, with flavours of nutmeg, lemon curd and hints of beeswax. The finish is long and complex, with persistent notes of citrus pith and pastry. A fresh wine that will develop with bottle ageing.

    Description

    Ata Rangi, meaning ‘dawn sky, new beginning’ is owned and managed by a family trio – Clive Paton, his wife Phyll and his sister Alison. In 1980 Clive planted the bare, stony, home paddock at the edge of Martinborough, becoming one of a handful of people who pioneered grape growing in the area. Ata Rangi is renowned for its Pinot Noir and is widely regarded as New Zealand’s top Pinot Noir producer. They were awarded Five Stars in the ‘2019 Great New Zealand Pinot Noir Classification’ by Matthew Jukes and Tyson Stelzer for the consistent gold medal standard of their wines. The wines from this boutique, organic winery are often as over subscribed as they are delicious.
