Description

Mills Reef have come of age and sit among Hawkes Bay's elite producers, their strong Gimblett Gravels vineyards contributing much of the backbone for this 2016 Reserve Syrah. A mixture of French and American oak gives a sweet, smooth finish to complement the spicy, red and black fruit.

Smells

Seductive aromas of rich black fruits with black pepper, white pepper, sweet spice and vanilla oak notes.

Tastes

Opulent and creamy throughout the entire palate, which is laden with dense black fruits, vanilla and baking spices with sweet oak . Likely to evolve through 2022 if well stored but it's a completely seductive glass of wine right now and will match well with quality cuts of meat and tasty hard cheeses.
