Millton La Cote Pinot Noir
La Cote is a section of Millton’s Clos de Ste Anne vineyard, situated on steep northeast facing slopes in the foothills of Poverty Bay in New Zealand’s Gisborne region. The hand harvested and sorted fruit was chilled, de-stemmed and fermented, using indigenous yeasts, in small wooden cuvees made from French oak. A bright-fruited, expressive nose with notes of dark cherry, juniper berry and fine burnished leather, yet with a subtle hint of roses. Savoury touches add complexity to the svelte palate and the taste is firm and alert with a lively mineral edge to balance. To soften the mouth-feel this wine has been fined with our own free-range egg whites, the yokes going to the kitchen for other culinary use. Certified organic wine.
