Millton Clos de Ste Anne Chardonnay 2019
If concentrated, richly textured, harmonious Chardonnay is your thing, then look no further. Milton’s Clos de Ste. Anne, a dry-farmed, steep northeast-facing vineyard in the foothills of Poverty Bay, is what we’re calling Gisbourne Grand Cru. We consider this one of New Zealand’s greatest Chardonnays and it will age beautifully, though you’ll find immediate pleasure and balance if you can’t wait.
James and Annie Millton are not only pioneers of the modern New Zealand wine industry, they’re also our first certified organic winegrower, and the oldest biodynamic producer in the Southern Hemisphere. From their Opou, Te Arai and Clos de Ste. Anne vineyards in Gisborne they produce energetic, textural wines that have an international following. James and Annie’s commitment to caring for their environment is matched by, and inextricably linked to the outstanding quality of wine they produce.
