Riverpoint Vineyard sits in the Matawhero Appellation of the Gisborne winegrowing district. The original vineyard was planted in 1978 and in 1997 this vineyard was replanted with Viognier, amongst the first commercial planting of this exotic variety in New Zealand. Situated alongside the old Waipaoa riverbed the soils here contain high levels of fine silt and silken clays and these minerals assist in producing aromatic and dense wines. Proximity to the Pacific Ocean exposes the site to a cooling sea breeze during summer and this effect plays a pivotal role in capturing a special delicacy of flavour in the grapes grown on this site.
Producer
The Millton Vineyard specialises in making fine Biodynamic wine from estate grown grapes sourced from single vineyards. For more than a quarter of century these grapes have been grown in the traditional manner using biodynamic techniques. This involves growing the grapes without the use of herbicide, insecticide, systemic fungicides or soluble fertilisers. It also incorporates the use of special herbal preparations and teas, as well as a deep understanding of the complex cosmic rhythms which affect these daily activities. As well these wines carry the certified organic trademark BioGro, as well as the grower ID number on the back label. In 2009 our vineyards were certified biodynamic by Demeter New Zealand. Both organisations have exacting standards which are audited to international level and meet the stringent requirements needed to participate in these specialised markets. All wines are Produced and Bottled on the Property.
