Ata Rangi ‘Craighall’ Martinborough Chardonnay 2016

07-Sep-2017
Without any doubt, Ata Rangi’s ‘Craighall’ Chardonnay is one of the Martinborough district’s best expressions of that variety, and the wine can stand tall among the country’s finest Chardonnay bottlings. The wine has a distinctive tautness and elegance allied to great concentration and beautiful textures, which the Ata Rangi team attribute to the Craighall vineyard site and the mature Mendoza clone vines, the oldest now over 30 years of age. Winemaker Helen Masters treats the fruit provided by vineyard manager Gerry Rotman with great respect, and her vinification is very sensitive. Here, I review the new release 2016 Craighall Chardonnay. www.atarangi.co.nz
