Ata Rangi 'Raranga'
A really delicious Sauvignon Blanc coming from Martinborough. The vines are really mature at Ata Rangi (planted 1980) and have a very small crop-both unusual for New Zealand Sauvignon. Portions are both tank and barrel fermented too. This gives the wine a real depth, with citrus and stone fruit, lime zest and some herbaceous notes. Crisp, clean finish, it's dry with really good persistence and length. Makes a change from the Marlborough styles.
