A bright-fruited, expressive nose with notes of dark cherry, juniper berry and fine burnished leather, yet with a subtle hint of roses. Savoury touches add complexity to the svelte palate and the taste is firm and alert with a lively mineral edge to balance.
Wine Of Origin
New Zealand, Gisborne
Light-Bodied Red Wine
James and Annie Millton established their winery on the banks of the Te Arai River, near Manutuke in 1984. Located on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand in the winegrowing region of Gisborne, this was the site where early settlers first planted grapevines in 1871. Millton was the first producer in New Zealand to attain BioGro certification for organic wine production in 1989. Having practiced traditional methods of cultivation and production centred on biodynamic principles since inception, Millton was the first winegrower in the Southern Hemisphere to gain the biodynamic certification Demeter in 2009.
