Millton Libiamo Amphora Chenin Blanc 2018 (Biodynamic/Organic/Vegan Friendly)
Gisborne, New Zealand
This wine is slightly cloudy and the first smell is of olive stone and almost briny, there is light dried straw much like the scarecrow and yet with the pear prettiness of Dorothy . A touch of honey and a whisper of almond are present The acidity is round, but refreshing and then there’s heaps of long chained tannin giving a very long textured pucker and a drying finish. It is cloudy from natural sediments, and smells very clearly of its origins in terms of place and fruit. The taste is long and intense.
We call this wine Libiamo; “let’s drink”.
