This dessert style wine is made our intensely citrus flavoured Riesling. It is hand-picked at optimum ripeness and the resulting wine is reduced through freezing to make a luscious pure dessert wine which has definite impact with moderate sweetness and a delicate balance. This fruity viscous wine pairs well with fresh fruit and cheeses. Try it with King Island Discovery Ash Brie or with a delicate dessert such as lime pannacotta.
Milton Vineyard was first farmed in 1826 initially for fine Tasmanian wool but is now producing fine cool climate wines. We are located at 42 Degrees South on the dry sunny Freycinet Coast of Tasmania. The grapes are grown on free draining red loam liberally sprinkled with dolerite rocks. Tasmania lends itself to boutique vineyards. Our vineyard has a unique micro-climate that suits the ancient grape Pinot Noir. Also in our 13 hectare vineyard are plantings of the aromatics Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer. Our focus is on producing small quantities of handmade wine. Close attention is paid to every detail in the vineyard and the wines represent this exacting work.
