A very classic Pinot Gris originally influenced by the style of wines from Alsace but developed over the years into our own, uniquely Martinborough style. The vines from which this wine was produced are now 22 years old. With roots that have driven metres deep into the gravels, they consistently deliver fruit with heightened texture and flavour. The up-front aromas evoke fresh cut pear, custard, pecans and lychees. The palate offers a creamy entry, with concentration and texture. The finish is long, dry and imbued with the flavour of fresh walnut and a hint of smoke. With just a few grams of residual sugar, Pinot Gris is a delicious stand-alone aperitif. It is also one of our favourite food and wine matching choices, especially for anything with heady spice and/or challenging flavours. The wine shows complexity and will benefit from bottle age.

Ata Rangi Lismore Pinot Gris 2017 - 90 points Review by Nick Stock | JamesSuckling.com
An impressive sense of concentration, poise and polish to this pinot gris. An array of citrus and apple-pear fruit aromas and flavors. Finishes sweet-ish and smooth. Drink now. November 2017. (Posted on 23/11/2017)
Ata Rangi Lismore Pinot Gris 2017 18.0+/20 points Review by Raymond Chan | October 2017

Very pale straw colour. The nose is elegant but intense with finely concentrated aromas of pears and stonefruits with floral lift and hints of honeysuckle. Dry to taste, the palate is tightly bound and crisp. The fruit expression is more slender than a riper vintage, but this still has fruit intensity of stonefruits and pears. The mouthfeel is near-racy, but flows seamlessly to a cool, clear finish.

From vines up to 22 y.o., fruit hand-picked and WBP, fermented partially by indigenous yeasts in tank and 500 L puncheons to 13.5% alc. and 4 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees.
