A beautiful Syrah from legends of Martinborough varietal winemaking, Ata Rangi. Hand picked and sorted from the Kahu vineyard very near Ata Rangi's home block, the Juliet delivers a juicy, black fruited and floral style with savoury undertones. Complete and sophisticated in a more "Pinot-like" way, the Juliet is a delicious red to drink now or cellar up to ten years.

Its Origins

Ata Rangi, meaning "dawn sky" or "new beginning" is a small New Zealand winery with an enviable international reputation for PInot Noir. Located at the southern end of the North Island, it is owned and managed by a family trio - Clive Paton, wife Phyll and Clive's sister Ali. Clive planted the first vines on a small, stony sheep paddock at the edge of the Martinborough village in 1980 as one of a handful of people who pioneered winegrowing in the area, after reading a 1978 scientific report which showed Martinborough had a micro-climate similar to that of Burgundy. In 2010 Ata Rangi was honoured with the inaugural Tipuranga Teitei o Aotearoa or "Grand Cru of New Zealand". With a skilled team in place, including dynamic winemaker Helen Masters, Clive now has more time to focus on his commitment to conservation and to the Ata Rangi alliance with Project Crimson. Ata Rangi is ISO-14001 and SWNZ certified, with a slow move into organic viticulture taking place as of now.

What The Critics Say

94/100 Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier

"ntense dark black and red berry fruits bouquet with clove and vanilla spices, pepper and spicy toasty wood tones. Dry, fleshy, fruity, spicy and complex. Youthful with firm tannin and acid line, contrasting core of fruit with black currant, dark raspberry, a soft silty mineral layer and dark baking spice flavours. Lengthy, youthful, developing and complex. A lovely example. Double decant for service or cellar. Best from late 2019 through 2026."
