Ata Rangi, meaning "dawn sky" or "new beginning" is a small New Zealand winery with a big reputation for serious Pinot Noir. Located at the southern end of the North Island, it is owned and managed by a family trio - Clive Paton, his wife Phyll and his sister Alison. Clive planted his first vines on a small, stony sheep paddock at the edge of the Martinborough village in 1980 as one of a handful of people who pioneered winegrowing in the area.

The Petrie block, 20 minutes’ drive north-east of Martinborough, sits on deep, gravelled, uplifted river terraces. Higher elevation vineyard perspective and wind exposure contribute in making this a cooler site, expressed in the typically bright fruit and marked thread of minerality for which Petrie Chardonnay is renowned. Complex aromas of wet stone and flint meld with notes evocative of pear and almond tart. The palate is long and driven; the acidity coiled around complex fruit characters of melon, roasted fennel and grapefruit.
