Wine Of The Week NZ
Mills Reef 2014 Elspeth Chardonnay, Hawke’s Bay NZD $39.95
Very attractive Chardonnay with sweet peach and apricot fruit flavours restrained by juicy acidity, a hint of chalky mineral flavour and very fine tannins. Silken-textured with acidity driving a lengthy finish. Accessible and attractive drinking now but has the potential to develop well.
