Mills Reef Winery

Mills Reef Winery reserve Chardonnay 2016 Hawkes Bay
A bouquet with shape and form - creamy, lush and rounded then fruity with baked peach and other stone fruits, a hint of raw brown sugar and butterscotch, a whisper of clove and vanilla with a toasty oak edge. On the palate - a core of fruit and oak with concentration as well as spice and oak tones, creamy texture, a citrus edginess and lengthy finish. Balanced, drink now or best from 2018 through 2026.
