Crazy by Nature Shotberry Chardonnay
This wine is no longer available.
Shotberries are the intense, small grapes that come from a special clone of the Chardonnay grape. This intensity of flavour, combined with the cool ocean breezes and a delicate touch of oak, makes for a refreshing, flavoursome wine that works particularly well with seafood and salads.
Winemaker James Millton's tasting note: 'Aromas of white peach and acacia flowers give a pleasing brightness and energy. A hint of oak adds a wave of texture. The alluvial soils are reflected in the wet-stone minerality of the finish. A glass of Gisborne sunshine!'
The Millton Vineyards
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
