If you like your wine big, bold and super-smooth, then make room in the cellar for the Mills Reef Reserve Cabernet Merlot 2018. The grapes for this generous wine were exclusively sourced on the stony soils of the prestigious Gimblett Gravels vineyard in Hawkes Bay. Reserve wines such as this are from low-yielding vines producing superior grapes that show intense fruit flavours and pure varietal expression. The winemaking philosophy is to achieve balance of flavour, structure and texture. A rich, full-bodied wine, the Mills Reef Reserve Cabernet Merlot 2018 is a traditional blend that exudes intense blackcurrant, blackberry and plum, layered with caramel and spicy, cedary oak. Ageing in quality oak has conferred a velvety-smooth texture, giving this wine immediate appeal, and making it the perfect partner for your favourite red meat dishes, such as this succulent Roasted Rib-Eye Beef.
