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.

Dense, complex pinot noir in a typical Ata Rangi style, with a nice mix of fruit and savoury characters. Dark-fleshed plum, black cherry with a suggestion of floral, mixed spice and sweet herbs. Spectacular wine with plenty of power and an incredibly lengthy finish. More accessible than the previous vintage was at this stage & showing great cellaring potential. The best Ata Rangi pinot noir I've tasted. Rating: 99 Points; Bob Campbell MW

Softer and more accessible than the 2013, this is a superbly elegant wine with appealing purity and real power delivered with subtlety. Complex with plum, cherry, subtle savoury/spicy notes and very classy oak. Another triumph from one of NZ's best producers. Rating: 97 Points; Huon Hooke | Gourmet Traveller Wine

This impeccably styled pinot offers power as well as elegance. The engaging bouquet shows dark cherry, violet, game and clove characters with nuances of cedar and dried herbs. The palate is beautifully ripe, concentrated and silky, and delivers terrific fruit richness backed by plenty of fine, chalky tannins. Youthful yet generous, poised yet expressive, and promises to develop magnificently. To 2030. Rating: 98 Points; Sam Kim | Wine Orbit

Medium-full bodied, vibrantly succulent and lusciously sweet fruit flavours of dark red berry and cherry fruit are harmoniously melded with flavours of ripe dark plums and fragrant violet florals, dark herbs, spices and red liquorice. A beautifully rich and succulent, elegantly balanced and refined Pinot Noir with seamless-flowing, ripe flavours of dark berry and cherry fruit with complexing floral and herbal detail. Drink over the next 7-10 years; Rating: 19.5/20.0; Raymond Chan
