Mills Reef – Reserve Pinot Gris and Merlot

27-Feb-2012

In some ways the middle-tier ‘Reserve' wines of Mills Reef are the better than the super-premium ‘Elspeth' range. They are designed to show varietal expression first and foremost with balance of all of their components. When wines are harmonious in this way, they are very accessible as well as being true-to-type, and thus enjoyable. Such wines are often extremely successful in wine shows too where judges look for appeal in the glass, and this explains why many such middle-tier wines win awards ahead of the more expensive prestige labels from the same company. Here are two of Mills Reef's latest ‘Reserve' wines. No pressure now… www.millsreef.co.nz
