Mills Reef

Mills Reef Elspeth Gimblett Gravels Syrah Hawke's Bay 2010
Nose: Smoke meats, rich, ripe and slightly sweet smelling; Blackberry, black cherry and slightly burnt raspberry  aromas; Not yet complex, but huge potential; Plenty of new oak adds spiced vanillin suggestions. Overall an intriguing and inviting bouquet.
95 Points

Palate: Immediately packed with fruits, oak, smoked meats and spices - white pepper and a touch of black; dry with stony gravel flavors build with several minutes on the glass. A long and impressive finish. Great balance and finish. Another stunner from Mills Reef.
5 Stars (95 Points)
