Mills Reef Winery

Mills Reef Winery Reserve Pinot Gris 2016 Hawke's Bay
Fruity and engaging bouquet with ripe pears and other white tree fruit aromas, a distinctive honeyed fruit note and gentle white spice layer. On the palate - fruity and fresh, medium+ (ish) acidity, warming alcohol and medium+ weight; flavours reflect the nose precisely led by the pear and honey. Medium+ length and finish leaving me with the impression that this is a wine worthy of your attention. Drink now and through 2020 - of stored correctly.

Mills Reef Winery Estate Syrah 2016 Hawke's Bay
Fruity and varietal with ripe raspberry and black currant juice, sweet red plum and cherry notes, mild pepper spices and oak. On the palate - a lovely core of ripe red fruits with flavours of cherry and raspberry leading, fine tannins and mild pepper tones, even milder oak and crunchy acidity. Balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2020.
