Mills Reef ‘Estate’ Chardonnay2010 and Merlot/Cabernet 2011

24-Jul-2012
As with most wine producers, Mills Reef has a stunning range of super-premium wines, theirs under the ‘Elspeth' label. The ‘Reserve' tier is also a consistent performer at the top level, the wines just as successful as the ‘Elspeth' wines on the show circuit. The engine room comprises wines that are readily accessible and easily available for wine drinkers, and this is what the ‘Estate' range is for Mills Reef. Winemakers Tim Preston and Paul Dawick make the ‘Estate' wines in a "soft, round style with an emphasis on natural fruit character” with the aim of offering "great quality and value”. My experience is that they regularly achieve these aims. Here are the latest Chardonnay and Merlot/Cabernet wines, the mainstay varieties from Hawke's Bay where the Mills Reef vineyard sources are. www.millsreef.co.nz
