92 Points - Halliday Wine Companion 2021
A pale straw colour in the glass, this wine presents pear, floral and banana passionfruit aromatics. The palate is beautifully textured through lees stirring and some limited barrel work, providing structure without imparting flavour. A soft food wine with layers of complexity. Enjoy with seared Tasmanian salmon, crayfish pate and white meats.
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.
