Opou Vineyard is an old vineyard planted with a mixture of Chardonnay selections. The soil type is complex clay loam over river derived silts giving wines of aroma and texture. Hand-picked grapes were gently pressed with the resulting juice being put into small French Oak barrels where they waited until the fermentation started in itsí own time. Only 12% of the oak was new however 100% of the wine enjoyed the secondary malo-lactic fermentation to soften the palate and increase texture. For over 12 months the wine aged in oak, then was assembled in stainless steel tanks to rest before being bottled on the property.
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.
