The Millton Vineyard was New Zealand’s first certified organic vineyard and they remain dedicated to making the highest quality Biodynamic wine. They live by the mantra “Before a wine can be great, it must first be true”, a quote from James’ friend Nicolas Joly.

Whilst adhering to this philosophy, the Millton’s have released three new exciting wines: A Sparkling, a Gewurztraminer, and from their Crazy By Nature range a Chenin Blanc.

MILLTON RIVERPOINT GEWURZTRAMINER 2010
The Millton’s have successfully introduced Gewurtraminer back to Riverpoint Road. This wine has a deep spice aroma of cardamom and star anise, with layered complexity from yeast contact and a silken softening from feral bacteria.

CRAZY BY NATURE DRY FLINT CHENIN BLANC 2010
From the superb 2010 harvest the Millton’s have introduced this vibrant zingy Chenin Blanc. This wine displays lively mineral notes, racy flint aromas and dry mouth-watering flavours. It is refreshing in its expressive style and juicy acidity. A versatile food wine.
