Sitting between the Estate and Elspeth ranges, the Mills Reef Reserve range offers wines that punch well above their weight in terms of flavour and value. Vinted from a blend of 80% merlot and 20% malbec from the Gimblett Gravels sub region, this is a sublime reserve-level wine from the sensational 2021 vintage. Characteristic dark berry flavours are there in force and backed up by underlying spice. Excellent buying.
The winery writes "Immediately warm and appetising, this deliciously harmonious blend of two classical Bordeaux varieties showcases boysenberry and plum fruits, complemented with spicy leather, hints of blueberry, violets and embodied with silky smooth tannins."
