Mills Reef 2013 Chardonnay and 2010 Elspeth Cabernet Sauvignon

19-Feb-2014
As a producer of Hawke’s Bay wines, Mills Reef covers the gamut with an incredibly diverse range, with different varieties and styles, across the hierarchy of tiers, from the everyday ‘Mills Reef’ wines to the flagship ‘Elspeth’ examples. The quality within each of the ranges is exemplary and the wines always offer value. Here, I review the new release 2013 Mills Reef Chardonnay, the base model, but from a superb vintage, and the 2010 Mills Reef ‘Elspeth’ Cabernet Sauvignon, from a more difficult, cooler year, these wines from the opposite ends of the aspirational spectrum. www.millsreef.co.nz
