Mills Reef 2013 Elspeth Chardonnay and 2012 Reserve Cabernet/Merlot

11-Sep-2014
Mills Reef is a committed Hawke’s Bay producer with a full range of varietal wines that represent the best of the region, with a special focus on the Gimblett Gravels. The ‘regular’ and accessible ‘Mills Reef’ wines are complemented by the premium ‘Reserve’ range made from fruit from low-cropped vines to express balanced varietal character. The top-of-the-line ‘Elspeth’ wines are made when the fruit is on exceptional quality. Here, I review the new release 2013 ‘Elspeth’ Chardonnay, from an outstanding vintage, and 2012 ‘Reserve’ Cabernet/Merlot from a most challenging growing season. www.millsreef.co.nz
