Mills Reef (Hawkes Bay) 2018 Reserve Chardonnay
91/100 - Bob Campbell MW
"Soft, rich, buttery wine with ripe peach, spicy oak and pleasant toasty flavours. A warming and textural wine in a crowd-pleasing and quite oaky style" Bob Campbell
Don't mess around with lacklustre Chardonnay when you could drink this consistently pleasing richer, heavier Chardonnay.
100% barrel fermentation and 10 months in oak. The perfect combination of top notch Hawkes Bay fruit and a skilled team.
Rich, full-bodied Chardonnay, tropical stonefruit and grapefruit, with ginger and honey accents. The palate is smooth, with a buttery texture and toasty spicy notes. It will also develop well through cellaring. If you can make yourself wait that long!
