Wine Review: The Darker Side Of Rosé

This Reserve Rosé is crafted entirely from Merlot grapes grown in the renowned Gimblett Gravels during what was another exceptional year in Hawkes Bay. Different in presentation from your typical Rosé, quite dark in colour with vibrant fruit characters along with excellent structure that this vineyard can express.

MILLS REEF RESERVE Rosé 2016

This pioneer release single-vineyard Rosé is crafted in a dry style from premium Merlot grapes grown in an exceptional year. It exudes lovely strawberry and cherry complemented with subtle spicy aniseed notes. The palate is textural and full-bodied, with a refreshing finish. Warm and satisfying, enjoy on its own or with food.
