Millton Libiamo Amphora Chenin Blanc 2018Millton Vineyards & Winery
Origin: Gisborne, New Zealand
Grape: Chenin Blanc
James and Annie Millton are synonymous with Biodynamic farming and have been pushing New Zealand's winemaking boundaries since planting their Te Arai vineyard in 1984. They are also known for producing some of New Zealand's finest Chenin Blanc. The Libiamo range represents the next generation for the Millton family, in particular their children, this generation now look for something that is completely un-manipulated and doesn't leave a debt or burden on the planet.
Skin fermented for two weeks in tinajas (Spanish clay amphorae), the 2018 Chenin drinks with the clarity of a white wine, but with the texture and aromatics of something slightly more 'orange'. Beautifully clean and pure and a real delight to drink.
