James and Annie Millton are synonymous with Biodynamic farming and have been pushing New Zealand's winemaking boundaries since planting their Te Arai vineyard in 1984. Libiamo represents the next generation of the Millton family, James and Annie's children Sam and Monique, and how we as a generation now look for something that is completely un-manipulated and doesn't leave a debt or burden on the planet. The 2016 Libiamo Gewürztraminer is vinified for 86 days on skins! Testament to the virtues of biodynamic farming, vine-age, and how organic farmed fruit truly interacts with the soil below, the wine is aromatic, floral, juicy and its tannins soft and integrated. ​Bottled later without any fining or filtration. It is cloudy and offers a perfect journey from our place to your glass. With Love and Gratitude. Libiamo! Let's drink!
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"​This is our fourth vintage of this ancient style of wine. Inspired by time, our intuition, the influence of younger generations, especially our children Monique and Sam, yet respecting the antiquity of famous operas, joy, happiness, song and most of all the pleasure of drinking. We call this wine Libiamo; "Let's drink".

This wine is lifted with hints of cardamom, fennel seed and tumeric. A Moroccan market spice delight. There is an adoring complexity, rich with sweet sensations. It is cloudy from natural sediments, soft yet drying to the taste. It smells very clearly of its origins in terms of place and fruit. There is deep spice and almost waxy root crops, yet with lively pink rose aromas. It isn't quaint, nor is it fruity. The taste is long and intense. Once opened, this wine will last, even improve, for a number of days afterwards, so take your time, savour and drink in moderation, with love and gratitude, but always remember to keep another bottle handy!"
