What’s in the glass tonight Jan 5th

Millton CSA Chardonnay 2007

This is why I buy and drink wine: From my cellar:

Millton Clos Ste. Anne Naboth’s Vineyard Chardonnay 2007 (bought 2010), $$$.

Millton is a bio dynamic organic producer, with a beautiful property outside of Gisborne, well worth the visit to their cellar door. This wine is matured to luminous golden yellow, with wonderful fragrance – butterscotch and toffee;. Peach and vanilla on palate showing good oak, seamless. No malo, so some minerality. With that rare thing, a cork closure.

Superb. Wine of the summer so far.
