Mills Reef 2013 Estate Merlot Cabernet and Reserve Pinot Noir

20-Mar-2015
It appears 2013 will be seen as one of New Zealand’s excellent vintages across the board with nearly every winegrowing region performing extremely well. Mills Reef with major holdings in Hawke’s Bay, and sourcing fruit from other districts will provide an abundance of riches, particularly at the flagship ‘Elspeth’ range. I’ve seen a number of ‘Estate’ and ‘Reserve’ red wines from Mills Reef that are portents of what is to come. Here, I review the 2013 ‘Estate’ Cabernet/Merlot from Hawke’s Bay fruit, and the ‘Reserve’ Pinot Noir, a wine that has utilised Marlborough fruit since the inaugural 2011 vintage. www.millsreef.co.nz
