    What was once a stony sheep paddock back in the 80s (bought by a stash of cash from the sale of herd cows) has become one of Martinborough’s premier wine labels, up there with best of Aotearoa and a glowing international reputation to boot.

    Ata Rangi Craighall Chardonnay is produced from 30 year plus old vines from their vineyard called (wait for it) Craighall, barrel fermented with indigenous yeasts, this is a label that is a class act year in, year out. The latest ’17 vintage hasn’t disappointed either with a 5 Star review from Bob Campbell MW and plenty more to follow for sure.

    When we say a class act every time, we ain’t kidding. Check out Bob Campbell’s scores for Ata Rangi Craighall Chardonnay from ’17 to ’05…
    95, 96. 96. 96. 97. 96. 96. 96. 95. 95. 96. 95.

    We thought Bob summed this one up pretty nicely really – “Tangy, mouth-watering chardonnay with citrus, white peach, hazelnut and spicy oak flavours. A seamless, linear wine with impressive purity and power.”

    A Chardonnay for the Chardonnay lover with a taste for the top shelf stuff. Drink it now until 2025.
