Millton Estate Les Trois Enfants 2017Millton Vineyards & Winery
Origin: Gisborne, New Zealand
Grape: Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat a Petit Grains
Les Trois Enfants - The Three Kids tells a little story of a co-fermentation between Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Muscat a Petit Grains. They all grew up in our vineyards and have been cared for by loving guardians both out on the dirt and in the cellar. Picked together and then fermented together in stainless steel tanks and larger format oak barrels. Displaying vibrant aromas of figs, pears, pineapple and lychee and a broad opulence and fruit weight and a rich aftertaste. A complete intoxication of a serious affliction.
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.
