Mills Reef (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Reserve Cabernet Merlot

Boy this is a winner. If you love a good ol Bordeaux style blend this will surely please. Its got guts and finesse!

The grapes were then gently crushed, whilst also allowing some whole berries to remain intact. The must was transferred into closed-top stainless steel tanks for a cold soak of an average four days duration.  Fermentation was then initiated, followed by daily rummaging for colour, flavour and fine tannin extraction. The resulting wine was then aged for 16 months in quality French oak barriques (25% being new wood), with one racking during élevage.

The final blend was composed, comprising 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot, and judged to have already attained perfect harmony, to only require a light fining. The wine was gently filtered to preserve the wines full natural complexity, structure and flavour profile. Bottling took place on 30th October 2020 under screwcap closure. 

A rich full bodied wine, this blend exudes intense blackcurrant, blackberry and plum flavours, layered with mocha and spicy cedary oak.  Ageing in quality oak has conferred a velvety smooth texture, for immediate appeal, or for judicious cellaring. Well matched with BBQ Moroccan Lamb Loin and Tabbouleh salad.

Mills Reef (Hawkes Bay) 2020 Elspeth Chardonnay

4 Stars - The Wine Writer (2019 vintage)
"Hand harvested grapes were fermented with a combination of wild and inoculated yeasts to add complexity and show the vineyard’s unique terroir. Aged in French oak, of which 32% was new, for a period of 12 months. Medium gold in colour with intense aromas of stone fruit, apple, juicy grapefruit, smoky oak with a trace of flint and a touch of sweet vanilla. The palate is powerful and concentrated with a creamy texture. The flavours of white peach, just ripe apricot and floral notes blend perfectly with the oak derived spices to make a powerful but structured Chardonnay."
