Description

Millton wines are made biodynamically and organically, winemaker and founder James Millton acting as something of a mentor to other would-be naturalists in NZ winemaking. He describes his vineyard philosophy as not 'fighting dis-ease, but farming ease'... comparing spraying a vineyard to taking an asprin every morning to ward off headaches. His methods and ideas are always thought-provoking, as are his wines, this 2015 Riverpoint Viognier showing beautifully upon release with some flavours that are quite simply out of this world.

Smells

Soft and nutty on the nose, with hints of dandelion, almond meal, apricot and blossom .

Tastes

Full, fat and quite concentrated, there is an intriguing savoury, peppery character to the mid-palate almost like Gruner, but with stonefruit and lemon pith too. A classy and individual wine, you don't need to dance naked under the harvest moonlight to enjoy this... but it sure couldn't hurt!
