Mills Reef

Mills Reef Elspeth Trust Vineyard Syrah Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay 2010
Translucent ruby core with a vibrant pink rim
Nose: Sweet raspberry and black fruits encased in a bold, yet well positioned oak signature; soft, but well spoken pepper notes and a cooked field mushroom and gravel soil edge.
92 Points

Palate: Dry with fruit and oak centred flavors - blue and black currant, a touch of black berry and raspberry. Medium+ tannins are integrating well with plenty of time to settle in (5+ years). A long finish marked by a gravelly textured complexity.
5 Stars (92 Points)
