Description

Te Arai translates to 'the place where you pause before going on to the land of eternal sunshine'. Sounds a little fatalistic but the sunshine part is certainly right, this wine being the product of a stellar 2018 vintage for James Millton. Certified bio-dynamic by Demeter, James subscribes to theories that are far from the norm in NZ, but like a conversation with the man himself, his wines are always thought provoking and individual.

Smells

Vibrant pineapple and grapefruit, with lime zest and gardenia floral.

Tastes

Just off dry on the palate, the succulent, rich flavours are reminiscent of cumquat, peach, honeycomb and mandarin, with subtle herbal and spice notes coming through on the finish. A lovely integrated wine with real presence, we recommend giving the wine some time in the decanter prior to serving - it really looked its best a day or two after opening when we tried it! Enjoy between now and 2028
