Mills Reef Bespoke Hawke's Bay Chardonnay (2020)

'Sumptuously soft and opulent', the 2020 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard wine, matured in French oak casks (50 per cent new). Bright, light yellow/green, it is mouthfilling and fleshy, with generous stonefruit and toasty oak flavours, gentle acidity and a seductively smooth finish. It's already drinking well.
