ATA RANGI

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 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. Ata Rangi’s first vineyard covered less than five hectares of thin, well-drained alluvial soil. More than three decades later - backed by a string of awards and accolades - Ata Rangi is well established in 25 international markets and is, according to British wine writer Tim Atkin MW, "widely regarded as New Zealand’s top Pinot Noir producer". During the international Pinot Noir 2010 event, Ata Rangi was given the title of “Tipuranga Teitei o Aotearoa” which translates from Maori as “Great Growth" or "Grand Cru" of New Zealand. The wine style is quite Burgundian, with an extra layer of alluring creamy fruit that somehow manages to stay light and refreshing.
