Mills Reef Elspeth Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay


Past vintages under the top Elspeth label flowed from the Gimblett Gravels, but the stylish 2019 (4.5*) was hand-picked in the cool, elevated Riverview Vineyard. Fermented and matured for a year in French oak casks (32 per cent new), it is mouthfilling, with vibrant, peachy, citrusy flavours, showing good delicacy, well-integrated oak, fresh acidity, and a tightly structured finish. Best drinking 2022+.
