Millton Te Arai Chenin Blanc

The 'Te Arai' Chenin Blanc is probably Millton's best known wine - it is the trump card for the estate, and is a wine that always over-delivers. The MilltonTe Arai vineyard is five kilometres from the sea. “Te Arai” roughly translates to “the place where you pause before going on toward the land of eternal sunshine.”
The balanced expression of yellow apple, dried florals, salt and complex citrus is wonderful, with texture and acidity in perfect tandem. Aromas of fresh lime zest and fragrant gardenias, this wine is taut and vibrant in a way that will show its’ maturity over a very long period of time. Flavours of fine wool and bush honey are enhanced by cumquat and ripe bouche pear aromas with a tingling aftertaste.

Ageing potential: Made to age gracefully. Ageing potential is at least 10 years from the date of release.
