Millton Opou Vineyard Chardonnay 2017 (Biodynamic/Organic/Vegan Friendly)
Gisborne, New Zealand
There is a hint of gun smoke and orange blossom on the aroma. The acidity is clipped yet complex while still having a salinity. The tannin is tempered with a character of acorn and oat cake biscuit which give a breadth to the mouth feel. It has a long and rounded texture clipped by cleansing acidity and framed by silken tannins.

“Grown not made” is the philosophy that duo James and Annie Millton follow to ensure their wines portray a sincere expression of Gisborne terroir. Considered pioneers in biodynamic wine, Millton Vineyards have been crafting wine using low-impact techniques since their very beginnings in 1984. They were one of the first to achieve Demeter certification, guaranteeing the highest standard of biodynamic agriculture and horticulture. To further solidify this commitment, in June 2012, James Milton was named a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit as recognition for his services to the New Zealand wine industry.
