2016 Millton Riverpoint Vineyard Viognier

From the king of biodynamics...another stunning Viognier

FWD Co. Panel f93

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. The original vineyard was planted in 1978 and in 1997 this vineyard was replanted with Viognier, amongst the first commercial planting of this exotic variety in New Zealand.

Smells

Soft and nutty on the nose, with almond meal, apricot and blossom

Tastes

Full bodied and quite concentrated, there are layers of stonefruit, poached pears and lemon. A stunning Viognier, the layers of warm pastry, rich fruits and fine minerality with spicy edges make for a fulfilling and rich experience.
