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 when Ata Rangi was still in its infancy, the Paton family were one of only a few pioneer grape growers in the area.
The Ata Rangi winemaking philosophy is one of a simple, hands-off or traditional approach, focused on finding the true expression of their land.
Uniquely Martinborough in style, with a real depth of palate, texture and length.
Grapes for this wine are carefully hand-harvested from older low-yielding vines, adding both depth and complexity to nose and palate.
With fresh fennel, lemon curd and citrus blossom on the nose, the palate is rich and creamy, the result of 30% of the harvest having been fermented in old oak barrels.
