"Giallo" is an homage to one of our favourite varieties of Muscat, Moscato Giallo, usually found in North/Northeast Italy.
This is Muscat from Millton's biodynamically farmed vineyards in Manutuke, Gisborne. Hand harvested, wild fermented on skins for just 48 hours, pressed into stainless steel for fermentation and then and matured in used French oak barriques for 15 months. Unfiltered, unfined, minimal SO2.
Stylistically this is a lighter, fresher, less "skinsy" and less "leesy" (cloudy) orange wine than the Libiamo wines found in bottle. It has been matured in used French oak so is soft on the palate and incredibly easy to enjoy. It's juicy, supple and drinks almost like a white wine but with phenolics, taste and texture.
We are now offering our packaging-free natural wines for online delivery.
We work closely with wineries up and down the country to bring you organic, natural wines straight from the winery to our store, and offer them to you on tap, packaging free.
We fill to order, and fill into sturdy, heavy-duty 750ml swing top bottles that you can later reuse. The wines are held under nitrogen and the bottles are pre-gassed before filling to prevent oxidation. We suggest opening the wine within 2-3 weeks of purchasing it and consuming the wine within 1-2 days of opening.
Once you've finished with the bottle pop back to either one of our stores (442 K' Road, Auckland or 177 Cuba Street, Wellington) for a refill, or use the bottles for other drinks, ferments, sauces, etc!
