What’s in the glass tonight March 28th – Chardonnay

Millton Shotberry Chardonnay 2014

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.
