Mills Reef Elspeth Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Cabernet/Merlot


Grown and hand-picked at the company’s close-planted Mere Road site, this is a consistently impressive wine. The 2016 vintage (4.5*) was matured for 17 months in French oak hogsheads (37 per cent new). It is a youthful, full-coloured, medium to full-bodied red. Fresh and vibrant, it is sweet-fruited, with concentrated blackcurrant, plum and slight nut flavours, oak complexity, and refined tannins. Best drinking 2022+.
