Millton produce the full array of aromatics and all their wines hit the mark with this gewürztraminer being no exception. Dry farmed, certified organic its delicate yet lifted, balance plus harmony this wine has had nothing added to it to disguise its authenticity.
Riverpoint is a special little appellation in the heart of the Gisborne wine growing district, down the cul-de-sac of Riverpoint Road, home of several famous wineries, and close enough to the ocean to offer a whiff of cooling sea air on those intoxicating hot summers’ afternoons.

Overview

Gewurztraminer

Its Origins

The first biodynamic estate in New Zealand (and the first in the Southern Hemisphere to gain Demeter certification), James and Annie Millton have been growing wine in Manutuke on the banks of the Te Arai river in Gisborne since 1984. Farmed from inception in this manner, it was built on the backbone of family winegrowing in the area, with both James and Annie's parents having vines in what is now known as "Opou" and "Riverpoint". The Clos de Ste. Anne is a single vineyard situated on steep north-facing slopes in the foothills of Poverty Bay. The grapes are all hand harvested and fermented with indigenous yeasts present in the vineyard. The estate is mostly known for their Chenin Blanc - a benchmark for the country - but they also grow wonderful Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Viognier, Gewurztraminer and Riesling.

What The Critics Say

4.5 Stars Michael Cooper

"The 2014 vintage (4.5*), partly oak-aged, is a light gold, mouthfilling, fleshy wine with concentrated, spicy, gingery flavours, a sliver of sweetness, and strong personality."
