User Reviews for Ata Rangi Summer Rosé

Winemaker's Notes:

Ata Rangi, meaning "new beginning" or "dawn sky", was a barren 5-hectare paddock when Clive Paton bought it in 1980. He was one of a handful of winemaking pioneers in Martinborough, then a forgotten rural settlement, who were attracted to the area by three key features - the localised, free-draining shingle terrace some 20 metres deep, the lowest rainfall records of anywhere in the North Island, and the proximity to the capital city of Wellington, just an hour away. This is a deep coloured, intense wine with fragrant aromas of blueberries, blackcurrant and chocolate with hints of Christmas spices - cloves, cinnamon and cardamom. The Merlot adds a plummy richness and the Syrah freshly-cracked black pepper characters to the perfumes. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, with tobacco and toasty French oak flavours, with rich, ripe fruit characters, rounded tannins and a long finish. Will keep well for the next five years or so.
