Millton Clos de Ste Anne Naboth's Vineyard Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
This Gisborne red from Millton is one of the country's northernmost quality Pinot Noirs. Grown biodynamically at the hillside Millton Vineyard Clos de Ste Anne site at Manutuke, the 2007 vintage is richly varietal, with strawberry and spice flavours, showing excellent depth and complexity, ripe, supple tannins and a fragrant, welcoming bouquet.

This single-vineyard Gisborne red is one of the country's northernmost quality Pinot Noirs. The 2003 vintage was fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured for 14 months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new) and bottled without filtration. Full-coloured, it is robust and tannic, with strong plum, raspberry and spice flavours and lots of personality. Tasting slightly raw and tough in mid to late 2004, it needs time; open 2006+.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
This single-vineyard Gisborne red is one of the country's northernmost quality Pinot Noirs. The 2002 vintage was fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured for a year in French oak barriques and bottled without filtration. Described as 'masculine' by winemaker James Millton, it is deep and youthful in colour, with a tight tannin grip. Very fresh and vibrant, with strong, ripe cherry, raspberry and spice flavours and considerable earthy, savoury complexity, it should be long-lived.

Michael Cooper (1995 Vintage) says
The 1995 vintage of this singleineyard Gisborne red was oak-aged for 18 months. A robust wine with plenty of muscle, it's maturing well, with rich, cherryish, complex flavours. A finely structured, very satisfying red, it's currently impressive but still developing. There is no 1996 or 1997, but the 1998 will be released in 2001.
