2016 James Millton ‘Libiamo’ Field Blend
This is wine. James Millton has been a pioneer of biodynamics in New Zealand since literally before I was born. (And that's using ‘literally’ in the literal sense). He has made some stunning wines and among other things has almost single-handedly made Chenin Blanc relevant again. Libiamo is the next step. These wines push the boundaries but they are, without a doubt in my mind, the finest orange wines made in NZ. This wine sees the blending of Marsanne, Viognier and Muscat and has rich, aromatic, floral notes; grippy tannins and pithy citrus.
