Sourced from fruit solely from our Martinborough vineyards this year, the 2017 is an enticing mix of strawberry, redcurrant and Pacific Rose apples with a hint of aniseed. A dry Rosé, it is creamily textured with a bright, expressive mid palate and a mineral, chalky finish. A range of fruit has been used this year: 30% Merlot, 35% Syrah 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay for acidity and freshness. Our very first Rosé, aptly known as 'Summer Rosé' was launched in 1998 with a view to producing a crisp, fruit-expressive dry style, largely intended for enjoying over the summer months. Rosé has grown from strength to strength in the intervening years, and is now considered an appropriate and versatile choice year-round. It’s an excellent 'go to' food wine, especially with lighter dishes and the increasing focus on vegetarian options. It's also a match for spicy food and, of course, a sheer-enjoyment tipple on its own.

Ata Rangi Summer Rosé 2017 - 88 Points Review by Nick Stock | JamesSuckling.com
A dry, tightly structured and crisp pink wine that has plenty of watermelon and fresh pink berry fruit flavors. Drink now. November 2017. (Posted on 23/11/2017)
Ata Rangi Rosé 2017 - 17.5+/20 points Review by Raymond Chan | October 2017
Very pale pink colour, light edged. The nose is fresh with aromas of strawberries and cream, the fruit with good ripeness, the componentry very harmoniously presented, and quite mouthwatering from the youthfulness. Dry to taste, the palate is elegant in proportion, quite taut with strawberries and cream, along with thirst-quenching bitter cherry notes and a touch of herbs. Very fine-textured, and lively, crisp acidity, finishing clean, dry and lightly nuanced with red fruits. All Martinborough fruit, a blend of 35% Syrah, 30% Merlot, 15% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay, the Pinot Noir fermented in barrel, to 13.5% and dryness. (Posted on 9/11/2017)
