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.”

Over the years their determination to produce one of the world’s best wines from this variety is a seasonal challenge and a bottled fantasy. In 2021 they did four selections from the vineyard of hand-harvested the grapes. On the crush pad, the stems are discarded as these grapes give up their juice very easily during the long slow press cycle. The juice is collected together and allowed to settle for only a short time as they wish to keep the fine sediments, for it is here that all the nutrients lie which satisfy a well-behaved fermentation. The fermentation and maturation take place in demi-muids (large 600-litre oak barrels) and stainless steel tanks. The wine matures in these vessels over time, and without the obtrusion of oak tannins, which would otherwise disrespect the subtle fruit aromas.
