Lisa Perrotti Brown Jan 2015:
The 2012 Riverpoint Vineyard Viognier offers pretty peach and apple blossom scents with suggestions of allspice and clover honey. Medium-bodied, it gives plenty of creaminess in the mouth with lively acidity supporting the rich stone fruit and spice flavors, finishing with very good length.          

Das Weingut beschreibt den Millton Riverpoint Viognier wie folgt:
Riverpoint Vineyard sits in the Matawhero Appellation of the Gisborne winegrowing district. The original vineyard was planted in 1978 and in 1997 this vineyard was replanted with Viognier, amongst the first commercial planting of this exotic variety in New Zealand. Situated alongside the old Waipaoa riverbed the soils here contain high levels of fine silt and silken clays and these minerals assist in producing aromatic and dense wines. Proximity to the Pacific Ocean exposes the site to a cooling sea breeze during summer and this effect plays a pivotal role in capturing a special brackish salty aroma and a soft satin flavor. Muscat petit Grains was planted at Riverpoint in 2011 and Marsanne was planted in Opou Vineyard in 2010.

The Viognier was harvested by hand, fermented in a mix of 300 litre French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks with native yeasts.  Included  in the final blend is a parcel of Viognier that spent 77 days fermenting on skins in open top 600 litre French oak barrels.  In the Rhone Valley of France there are a number of complimentary white grape varietals. The 2015 has the addition of Marsanne to providing an element of depth and richness while 2% Muscat give a fruity lift as well to this wine.  A haunting wine with bristling delicacy, buoyed by a noted mineral edge the  poached pear and red capsicum flavours give a spiced and sappy appeal. The salinity sings the proximity of the vineyard to its maritime environment. We consider the aromatic delight of Viognier will enhance and partner foods high in Umami flavours.

Millton Chardonnay 2014 Opou Vineyards
NEU


91 Parker Punkte für den Jg 2013
Lisa Perrotti Brown bewertet den Opou Vineyard Chardonnay 2013 von Millton im Januar 2015 :

The nose of the 2013 Opou Vineyard Chardonnay is an exciting combination of fruity and savory in equal measures: peaches, yellow apples and nectarines matched by toast, roasted almonds and marmite plus a fragrant hint of ginger. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with satin textured stone fruit and yeasty flavors, finishing long and creamy. 

Drink it now to 2019.
