Millton Chardonnay 2013 Opou Vineyards


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.

Millton Riverpoint Viognier 2014
Leider ist der Millton Riverpoint Viognier 2014 noch noch nicht international bewertet worden. Wir haben aber die Bewertung zu dem JG 2012 gefunden.

90 Parker Punkte für den 2012 er
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 Clos de Ste. Anne Les Arbres Viognier 2013
19 /20 Punkte Raymond Chan
16. Februar 2015:
Fruit from ‘Les Arbres’ a section in the lie of the forest, the whole bunches ‘crunched’ and warm-fermented in 600 L demi-muids to 14.5% alc. and 1.8 g/L RS, the wine aged 11 months in 40% new demi-muids, the wine undergoing batonnage with 75% MLF. Full, even, light golden yellow colour. The bouquet is full and broad with well-concentrated aromas of ripe apricots and savoury yellow stonefruit kernels, lifted by exotic yellow florals. This has great presence, the fruit stylishly reserved, growing subtly in creamy, nutty richness. Dry to taste and full bodied, a fulsome and mouthfilling array of flavours of ripe, exotic tropical fruits are lifted by exotic yellow florals with nutty and honied notes. This is rich and weighty with a rounded, near unctuous mouthfeel and soft textures. The generosity is enhanced by some alcohol power which leads to a soft, full, rich finish with exotic floral and stonefruit flavours. This is a full, rich, mouthfilling Viognier with exotic fruit flavours and underlying power. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 5+ years. Feb 2015 19.0-/20 Feb 2015

This latest release of James and Annie Millton’s ’Clos de Ste Anne’ collection may be the finest yet. They consider 2013 to be "possibly the best vintage in 30 years and all five of these wines will age for many years to come”. Indeed, the 2013 vintage is seen as one of the greats in the Gisborne, and north eastern North Island regions, and to date, the wines I’ve seen bear this out. The ‘Clos de Ste Anne’ wines are very special for the Milltons, as they are the produce from the single ‘Clos de Ste Anne’ estate, based on the original ‘Naboth’s Vineyard’ planted in 1981 to assess the potential of hillside vineyards in Gisborne. ‘Naboth’s’ was a completely different approach to the region’s existing vineyards which were planted on the flat land, primarily designed with high yields and ease of management in mind. Based on the unique character of the resultant wines, the Milltons extended the plantings in 1989, consolidating the varietal mix. ‘Naboth’s’ is now joined by ‘La Bas’, ‘La Cote’, ‘Les Arbres’, and ‘The Crucible’, and all these vineyards lie in the ‘Clos de Ste Anne’ estate which measures just over 12 ha.

The Clos de Ste Anne wines are particularly special for James Millton, as they are a tribute to his wife Annie. They are made with the greatest technical care, but also with the greatest love and inspiration to reflect their philosophies and experience of winegrowing for over three decades. Stylistically, the wines draw from the example of the world’s great wines, but they seek to capture the uniqueness of the Milton’s approach and the terroir of the site. Complexity and interest are aims in their making. Organic winegrowing, Millton being BioGro organic certified since 1989 and the adherence to biodynamics, Millton being Demeter certified since 2009, are all integral with the crafting of these wines, these concepts part of the Millton’s foundation. Here, I review the 2013 ‘Clos de Ste Anne’ collection, due for release at the start of March 2015.

Millton Clos de Ste. Anne La Bas Chenin Blanc 2013
19 /20 Punkte Raymond Chan
16. Februar 2015:
Brilliant, light golden-hued straw-yellow colour lighter on edge. The nose is very elegant, tightly bound and refined in expression, with restrained aromas of white and yellow florals and stonefruits, along with nuances of pineapple, unveiling waxy mineral, wet stone and nutty detail. The aromatics grow in presence and depth with aeration. Bone-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the intensity and depth of fruit confers an elegance of proportion. Tightly concentrated flavours of white and yellow stonefruits are subtly lifted by floral and honeysuckle notes and mineral suggestions. The palate features a fine-grained phenolic core of fruit extract, enlivened and driven by bright, lacy acidity. Some alcoholic power underlines the fruit which carries to a richly detailed, long lingering, dry finish. This is a fresh, elegantly concentrated, powerfully driven dry Chenin Blanc with stonefruit and mineral flavours. Serve with seafood and white meat dishes over the next 10 years. Fruit from ‘Las Bas’, WBP and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.5% alc. and 3.6 g/L RS, TA 7.3 g/L and pH 3.56 the wine aged 9 months in seasoned 600 L demi-muids on lees, without batonnage or MLF. 19.0/20 Feb 2015

Millton Clos de Ste. Anne Naboth s Vineyard Chardonnay 2013
19 /20 Punkte Raymond Chan
16. Februar 2015:

Hand-picked fruit from 25 y.o. vines from ‘Naboth’s Vineyard’, WBP and indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged over 10 months in seasoned barriques on lees with batonnage, but without MLF. Bright straw-yellow colour with green-golden hues, lighter on rim. The nose is full and softly concentrated with aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits and citrus fruits along with creamy, nutty barrel-ferment notes and mealy, biscuity elements melded with chalky minerals. The aromatics are harmoniously layered and build in depth with aeration. Medium-full bodied, flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits form a complex amalgam with nutty, toasty oak, biscuit and mealy elements and flinty, chalky minerals. This is mouthfilling and rich, with a firm core from the fruit extract. Soft acidity and fine-grained phenolic textures add to the weight and presence on the palate, and the concentration grows and carries the wine to a long, substantial, textured finish with an array of citrus, mealy and nutty flavours. This is a rich, concentrated Chardonnay with layers of complex citrus, nutty and mealy flavours and a creamy, textural mouthfeel. Match with roasted pork, veal and most white meat dishes over the next 5-7 years. 19.0/20 Feb 2015
