Ataahua – Waipara Wines from the Grant Family


Ataahua is the label of Andrew Grant and Stephanie Henderson Grant. With a wine industry background including winemaking, sales and marketing and business management, they purchased some of the oldest vineyards in the Waipara Valley, originally planted in the 1980s, to produce their own hand-crafted wines. The Ataahua vineyard is in three blocks, with Merlot and Pinot Noir planted in the early 1990s, and Gewurztraminer planted in 2005 and 2006. The fruit for the other varietals under the Ataahua label is sourced from local vineyards in the Waipara Valley. The Grants released their first wines from the 2008 vintage. Here are my reviews of the latest wines.
