Millton 2007 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, 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.
A versatile food wine, particularly suitable with seafood, cheeses and summer salads. In keeping with the immediate trend, this youthful wine has been sealed with a Stelvin closure. Serve cool. Cellaring potential 3 - 4 years from date of release.

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.
