Millton Te Arai Chenin Blanc

We just love this; honeyed pears and quince and moreishly off-dry
The Te Arai vineyard is five kilometres from the sea. This maritime proximity underlies the wines unique South Pacific style. The silt soils give fragrance while the occasional incidence of botrytis, generated by the autumnal mists from the Te Arai stream, gives complex texture and body to the wine. You can smell ripe apple, tracking towards quince, acacia honey and waxy pears, evolving to a myriad of layers as it matures. On the palate the finely grained tannin from fruit and large wood bind into the clipped yet refreshing acidity, an alluring rich honeyed character will develop and intensify with time. We've had a lot of fun paring this off-dry white with some fabulous cheeses this last year and the overwhelming thumbs up is to enjoy this with the equally delicious Old Amsterdam.

Vintage Roots were founded back in 1986, by a team who were keen to sell and promote something they felt passionately about, and organic wine was the perfect option. They all felt that organic wine is better, not only in taste, but also the environment. Having started with a list of just 12 wines, they have grown into a huge company, selling some three hundred wines! Here at Whitmuir, we are incredibly proud to supply organic wine, and we strongly agree with the ethos at Vintage Roots. Their selection of organic wine is fantastic, they have a huge selection and can cater for any taste.
