Mills Reef Winery ‘Elspeth’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay
Ripe, fragrant, alluring and concentrated bouquet with dark red fruits of black berry and plum then violet, marmite and chocolate oak moments; sandy dry stone minerality, complex and intriguing. On the palate – firm, youthful, engaging textures, dry finish and packed with flavour. Dark berries, liquorice, chocolate and toasty oak, firm youthful tannins and acidity to match. Long finish, complexity builds as the wine pens in glass. Decant for early drinking service, best from 2020 through 2030.
