Sourced largely from the oldest home blocks now reaching thirty years of age, Abel, aka Ata Rangi clone, is predominant, but Pommard clone 5 and Dijon clones 114, 115 and 667 play supporting roles. The extra weight and complexity of these choice clones is essential to the Ata Rangi style. Grapes are destemmed and treated to a minimal crush into fermenters. The musts are kept cool for several days as indigenous yeasts begin their vinification. Temperatures peak at 32°C over the course of three to four weeks, as batches are regularly hand plunged. Components are filled to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels, for completion of malolactic and a year's maturation.

Tension and vibrant entry before a compelling mid palate, fine layered tannins flow and persist, underwriting the elegant raspberry, cherry and closet oak fruit, resolving on a seamless, mineral licorice finish.
