2000 ELSPETH MERLOT
2002 SAUVIGNON BLANC RESERVE
HAWKES BAY, NEW ZEALAND
2000 ELSPETH MERLOT

This superb Hawkes Bay red is made from densely planted Merlot vines at Mills Reef's very own vineyard Mere Road, situated in the heart of the famous Gimblett Gravels district in Hawkes Bay.  The grapes were all hand harvested, destemmed and then fermented in stainless steel vates.  The wine was then aged in French oak barriques for 18 months and bottled on the 13th September.
Dark, fragrant and highly concentrated with a deep purple-flushed hue, this is a superb Hakes Bay red.  Elegant and approachable, a mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity wine with a backbone of ripe supple tannins.  With lovely sweet fruit characters of rich blackcurrent, spice and plum, a strong nutty oak influence and a powerful finish, this wine will reward cellaring.
