    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 NZ’s best and has a glowing international reputation to boot.

    Their Ata Rangi Pinot Noir is an absolute star, regularly one of Aotearoa’s finest and most sought after. We could waffle on all day and wax lyrical about what a class act this is, sometimes the critics and gurus say everything that needs to be said…

    5 Stars (96/100) – Bob Campbell (MW)
    “A Kiwi classic that lives up to it’s lofty reputation despite a vintage that presented challenges”

    5 Stars (98/100) – Sam Kim
    “Graceful power and immense complexity”

    5 Stars (97/100) – Huon Hooke (MW)
    “A long and rewarding life ahead”

    5 Stars (98/100) – Nick Stock (
    “The palate has a velvety layer that few others manage to find”

    If you need any more convincing that Ata Rangi sits at the big boys table when it comes to seriously classy Pinot then consider they’ve also made the Five Star list of the “Great NZ Pinot Noir Classification”, a rolling classification system based on the past five vintages. Only four other NZ Pinot producers currently have this status.

    Buy some. Drink some. Cellar some (10-20 years). Just get some.
