Description

This is vibrantly, enthusiastically aromatic, leaping forward with green capsicum, gunflint and freshly cut grass, the palate underlined with a mouth-cleansing wash of lime and cool minerality. Ata Mara’s Sauvignon Blanc is sourced away from the small estate’s own Central Otago vineyards, about 300 miles to the north in Sauv Blanc Mecca, Marlborough.

The quintessential aperitif, pair up with freshly shucked oysters to really set your heart racing.

Ata Mara is a small New Zealand estate dedicated to producing hand crafted elegant and appealing Pinot Noir and aromatic white wines from Central Otago in the South Island. Husband and wife David Pratt and Janiene Bayliss started the venture 20 years ago as part of a leisurely retirement plan, possibly without realizing the work involved! The vineyards extend to 20 hectares, on the terraces between Lake Dunstan and Mount Pisa, due east of Milford Sound and Queenstown if you're lucky enough to have visited the area. This is the most southerly point on the planet that grapes are grown commercially but the conditions are perfect for cool climate varietals like Pinot. The land is flat with low fertility alluvial sandy soils interspersed with extensive gravel pans rising to the surface across much of the vineyards. Hot days in the valley countered by cool nights, followed critically by a cool autumn, ensure slow ripening of these most fickle of varietals, and a resulting quality to rival Burgundy.
