Mills Reef 2014 ‘Reserve’ Merlot/Malbec

03-May-2016
Mills Reef is one of the stalwarts of Hawke’s Bay with a strong presence in the different growing regions of the district, but especially in the Gimblett Gravels where their prime vineyards are situated. The Mills Reef wines are clearly defined into their various tiers, the ‘Estate’ wines emphasising fruitiness and approachability. The ‘Reserve’ wines are more sophisticated, showing flavour, structure and texture. And the flagship ‘Elspeth’ wines highlight excellence and complexity. As with a number of high-performing producers, the Mills Reef tiers can overlap so that the wines over-deliver. Here, I review the 2014 ‘Reserve’ Gimblett Gravels Merlot/Malbec blend. www.millsreef.co.nz
