Millton 2006 Riverpoint Vineyard Chardonnay
Winery/Brand: Millton Wines
Drawn in by the warmth of aromas of white peach, pear and dried figs, a seam of lime zest runs through the vibrant palate. Cold fermented in stainless steel with a small portion in special large French oak hogsheads, the wine retains a freshness with a hint of oak adding subtle complexity. The alluvial soils are reflected in the wet-stone minerality of the finish.
The 2006 harvest was excellent, producing ripe grapes and full flavours. The young juice was fermented in a mix of stainless steel tanks and special 300 litre French oak hogsheads. A portion has been aged in older small oak to enhance the evolution and harmonise the aromatics while retaining unique fruit vibrancy.
