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 2018 season produced gorgeous aromatics and plushness of fruit. That classic 'gris' pear-and-almond-tart character is evidenced here, along with ripe nectarine, a hint of kaffir lime leaf and a touch of pithy grapefruit. The palate is rich and powerful, with a mineral texture and a long, intense finish. With a delicate touch of residual sugar, it’s both a delicious stand-alone aperitif and perfect with Thai and other Asian influenced food. Fermenting on lees for several months in a combination of stainless and large oak puncheons has also added satisfying palate weight.
