Mills Reef 2010 ‘Elspeth’ Bordeaux Varietals

08-Nov-2012

Established in 1989, Mills Reef quickly gained the reputation as a Gimblett Gravels Bordeaux varietal specialist, and indeed, the ultra-premium ‘Elspeth' reds can be counted among the most successful, award-winning and consumer friendly examples today. These wines come from the well-established 16 ha ‘Mere Road' vineyard and the young 4 ha ‘Trust' vineyard on the corner of Mere Road and S.H. 50. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and blends of these varieties have all proven winners, and it is a testament to the special nature of the sites and soils, the understanding of the vines and their requirements as well as the sensitive winemaking approach. Mills Reef make ‘Left Bank' and ‘Right Bank' styled wines to the same high level of quality and wine lovers can rejoice and learn by comparing the two styles with these two 2010 vintage wines reviewed here. www.millsreef.co.nz
