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 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 – and 2020 was just that, another belter in the Hawke’s Bay area.

Aged for a whopping 26 months in premium French oak (35% expensive new oak) this is a dark, brooding Cabernet that’s totally reeking of class. It’ll comfortably cellar for several years (try up to 2035) yet but can you really resist opening it up straight away? Better grab a few bottles in that case!
