We're thrilled to list this first vintage Gewürztraminer from Riverpoint. Fermented over a very long 18 months on it's lees, this unique nectarous wine has developed further deep spice and layered complexity from the yeast contact.
'Terrific, classic Gewurz nose, with lychee and Nivea cream and lots of herbal notes coming through in a gentle leafiness. Full and weighty, though basically bone dry, the luscious or sweet character suggested by those aromatics not quite the reality on the palate with its lovely racy fruit and great core of acidity. Delicious, tangy, moreish stuff.' 90 points Tom Cannavan's Wine Pages, March 2013 (2010 vintage)
'The first Gewurz, and a textbook example, from James Millton's Riverpoint Vineyard. He must be feeling pretty pleased. Rose petal fragrance, lychee fruit with a touch of freshening green apple, nicely weighted, rounded palate finishing on a reviving citrus note. A great match for anything with a bit of spice, sweet vegetables such as red pepper, and a lovely aperitif too.' 90 points, The Wine Gang (2010 vintage)
James and Annie Millton established The Millton Vineyards in 1984. Located within kilometres of the South Pacific ocean Gisborne enjoys a temperate maritime climate with warm summers cooled by the afternoon sea breeze, misty autumns and mild winters. As biodynamic producers they incorporate the use of special herbal preparations and teas along with a deep understanding of the complex cosmic rhythms which affect their daily activities. James and Annie are committed to leaving the land in an improved state for future generations.
'These wines are not just superb by Gisborne standards, they are among New Zealand's best.' Jamie Goode, 2013
