"A beautiful fragrance blossoms with flowers and light red berry fruits, perfumed, delicate and fine. As the wine settles and warms in glass aromas of earth and mineral slowly emerge with a fine clay then lees and barrel scents showcase complexity and pinosity. Delicious on the palate painting flavour and texture with fine through moderate tannins, medium+ acid line with a taut youthful quality. A wonderful expression" Cameron Douglas

Winery notes - There is a lifted ethereal perfume of currants, forest floor and thorny rosehips, interwoven with the dried stems of fescue, fennel and wildflowers, the richness of ripe black doris plum and dark fruits enhancing the higher notes. Midway through the taste there is a sweet but gripping tannin grain which will allow this wine to age for time to come. A sense of a limestone minerality lifts the wonder.

All wines are produced and bottled on the property, and sealed with natural cork. They are a dream realised from memories and experiences in wine estates around the world. Clos de Ste. Anne is dedicated to Jame's wife and business partner, Annie.

In 1984 James and Annie Millton established The Millton Vineyard on the banks of the Te Arai River near Manutuke, where the early settlers first planted grapevines in 1871. This region is situated on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand in the wine appellation of Gisborne.

Originally Annie’s father, Mr John Clark, had developed vineyards on his estate at ‘Opou’ in Manutuke during the late 1960's. James and Annie returned to Gisborne after experience gained in the famous wine regions of France and Germany including Champagne Bollinger, Maison Sichel in Bordeaux and Weingut Kurstner in Rheinhessen. By 1983 they had extensively researched and replanted major parts of the families’ grape growing business, before establishing The Millton Vineyard in 1984.

Even Millton's earliest releases were of high quality, not only winning favour with foundation customers, but pleasing the wine judges as well. Recognition was rapidly achieved winning numerous trophies and gold medals for the traditionally styled Riesling and Chenin Blanc. Internationally, gold medals were awarded for the 1992 Gisborne Chardonnay at the International Wine Challenge in London. This wine then went on to win the trophy at the International Organic Wine Challenge Fair, while two other Millton wines entered came second and third.

A similar result was achieved at the 2004 San Francisco Wine Fair with Gold medals for the Riesling and Chenin Blanc. The Chenin Blanc also won the trophy, moving it into the position of its current prestige as being a new-world wine classic gaining inclusion in Neil Beckett's, "1001 wines to drink before you die" (Published by Penguin in 2008).

Today, Milltons’ Gisborne wines consistently appear in fine dining rooms worldwide and continue to receive numerous national and international accolades. Millton Vineyards & Winery are exclusive members of international group "La Renaissance des Appellations" and New Zealand collaboration "The Family of Twelve".
