2016 Mills Reef Elspeth Merlot

Powerhouse Merlot off the Gimblett Gravels

FWD Co. Panel f93

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.
