Millton Crazy By Nature Shotberry Chardonnay Gisborne 2014 – $$
Millton is a biodynamic producer, and one of my favourites. I love what they do, and their Gisborne property is a jewel.
Brilliant gold colour. 13.5% alc.
A funky, woody, musky nose. Burnt caramel, cashew and ripe peach.
Somewhat angular at first look, then opens out to balanced fruit and acid. Flavours of autumn-fall apricots and warm nuts. Strong fruit through the mid palate, leading to a strong bitter finish. It resonates.
