Mills Reef’s flagship range – Elspeth (named after the winemaker’s Grandmother, Elspeth Preston) sits right up there with Hawke’s Bay’s wine elite. If it’s Elspeth slapped on the label you know you’ve got one classy little number in your hot little hands!
Hand picked fruit from 18 year old vines from one of their prized Gimblett Gravel vineyards and only released under the Elspeth label when the Mills Reef crew feel the quality is top notch. From one of the great Hawke’s Bay vintages (2013) – this stunning Cabernet has already taken out the top prize (Trophy for Champion Cabernet Sauvignon) at the Easter Wine Show 2015. Watch this space, this special wine has more to give in the coming years!
Aged for 16 months in premium French and American oak this is a dark, brooding Cabernet that’s totally reeking of class. It’ll comfortably cellar for several years yet but can you really resist opening it up straight away? Better grab a few bottles in that case!
