2016 Mills Reef Elspeth Merlot

Powerhouse Merlot off the Gimblett Gravels

FWDC 93/100

Description

Grown on Mills' Reef's Mere Road vineyards on the Gimblett Gravels this wine spends 17 months in French Oak (28% new). Another powerhouse Merlot from this Elspeth label.

Smells

Intense Black Doris plum, tobacco, spice and florals.

Tastes

Opulent yet fresh, with wonderfully silky tannins, from a wine (that at the time writing) has only been released for a couple months. A classic that's built for the cellar, but will be enjoyed now through 2023.
