Ata Rangi, Craighall Martinborough Chardonnay

Vegan, Organic.

Ata Rangi is owned and run by Clive Paton and his wife Phyll, together with Clive's sister Alison and winemaker Helen Masters. Clive planted the bare, stony five hectare home paddock at the edge of Martinborough in 1980 and, in doing so, was one of a handful of people who pioneered grape growing in the area. Renowned for their Pinot Noir, which is consistently ranked as one of New Zealand's best, Ata Rangi also produces a range of white wines including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.

The seamless, elegant Craighall chardonnay comes from 30-year-old vines in the heart of the deep, free-draining gravels of the Martinborough Terrace. It has serious concentration and drive with tight, bright acidity.

Tasting Note:
A clean, precise nose of ripe pear and jasmine flowers with savoury aromas of cashew and almond leading onto the elegant palate. Perfectly balanced with bright acidity.
