A Special Treat: The Limited Edition Mills Reef Elspeth One 2020 Launches in Time for Christmas

It’s finally here, but it won’t be for long. Our winemakers only produce the Elspeth range in exceptional harvest years, from ultra-premium, handpicked grapes from the famed Gimblett Gravels. The Elspeth One is a judicious fusion of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, which makes it a full-bodied wine, rich in complexity with notes of blackcurrant, brambly fruit, violets, cassis, and layers of chocolate, spicy oak and liquorice. It’s a powerful, yet refined, red with a silky, smooth finish.

The Elspeth One could be that special something you serve or gift this Christmas and is available by the bottle or in a three-bottle, wooden presentation case.
