Mills Reef ‘Elspeth’ 2015 Chardonnay and 2016 Merlot

11-Apr-2018

The ‘Elspeth’ range of wines is Mills Reef’s top tier, and are made from fruit sourced from the company’s vineyards in the Gimblett Gravels. They comprise Chardonnay, Syrah and Bordeaux-varietal bottlings, and are invariable superior wines with excellent fruit depth and matching structure, and possess the ability to develop complexity as well as live well. They are named in honour and memory of the winemaker’s grandmother Elspeth Preston. Here, I review the ‘Elspeth’ 2015 Chardonnay and 2016 Merlot, both from the Gimblett Gravels. www.millsreef.co.nz
