Elspeth status is only used to refer to the highest quality parcels from Mills Reef's vineyards, their Gimblett Gravels vineyards are always worthy of special mention. A third straight excellent growing season saw Cabernet ripen to perfection, producing a supple and fragrant wine of rare polish. Cellar 5 to 10 years with confidence. And the current release of this stellar wine is 2018, an outstanding vintage and a wine with some bottle age, it’s a win-win situation for us all.


Classic cassis, graphite, bramble, leather and plum.


Cedary oak and tobacco, with clean blackberry flavours and spicy interest, enveloped by sturdy but fine tannins. A long, layered finish gives confidence this will improve further in the cellar for those with the patience. Another great Elspeth from Mills Reef! Cook a fine cut of beef, open the bottle, decant and the rest will be a magical experience.
