Mills Reef

Mills Reef Winery Pinot Noir reserve 2013 Marlborough
Youthful fruity and fresh bouquet of Pinot Noir red fruits - berries and plums, moderate oak tones and complexity with a floral moment. On the palate - just dry, fruity, lush and very silky with medium tannins and acidity, lots of red berry fruits and plum with a fresh fruity finish; balanced and well made.
85 Points

Mills Reef Winery 'Elspeth' Syrah Gimblett Gravels 2013 Hawke's Bay
Lots of dark berries and meaty intensity with aromas of black currant and blue berry, no stopping the oak aromas of vanilla, toast and truffle; a peppery layer adds weight and intensity as well as complexity to the bouquet. On the palate - intense, fruity, packed with flavor and tannin, medium+ acidity & spice. Full-bodied and delicious - a wine that will impress Syrah fans. Drink now with fabulously fresh medium rare red meat or cellar for another 3 years first.
94 Points
