Rich crimson colour with an intensely concentrated ripe cherry nose, this wine has excellent depth of flavour and a finely balanced tannin structure resulting in a smooth long finish. The property's fruit was hand-picked in mid-April and made into wine by award-winning contract winemaker Julian Alcorso, at Winemaking Tasmania.
Notes provided by Milton.
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.
