"'Ranga ranga' means gentle breeze in the langauge of New Zealand's Maori people. The cooling winds of a cold Pacific ocean lie less than a mile from our vineyards and help to ensure an earlier start and a later finish to our extended growing season. Perfect for aromatic wines like ranga."
"Estate grown and 'Old School'. The crisp acidity carries a solid core of lemon grass, lime zest, the tang of cut lawn plus a hint of dried herbs and a touch of Awatere minerality. And it packs a fresh, zingy punch on the finish that makes it stand out from the crowd. Matches well to spicy food - Thai, Japanese, Indian, but works equally well with seafood and fat cheeses." -Winery
"Picked for freshness and fermented in stainless steel at very cool temperatures, the balance of ranga is exactly right - each mouthful is full of those 'ripe green' flavours at the center of what Marlborough has to offer." -Winery
