Reserve wines are from low-yielding vines producing superior grapes showing intense fruit flavours and pure varietal expression. The winemaking philosophy is to achieve “balance” of flavour, structure and texture.

Reserve wines are more complex than the Mills Reef range and by matching them with food can greatly enhance your dining experience.

    Vineyards and Winemaking

    The 2023 growing season experienced a cooler start during Spring flowering, helping to naturally moderate crop for higher wine quality later. The climate then led into an averagely dry summer before the arrival Cyclone Gabrielle on 13th Feb. After the dissipation of the cyclonic conditions the vineyards underwent a revaluation. Site selection, fruit condition, along with flavour and balance meant healthy fruit was able to be harvested, 11th March April 2023.
    The grapes were pressed on arrival to the winery, and the clarified juice transferred stainless steel tanks for fermentation, initiated with an inoculated yeast specially selected for its aromatic expression. A blending trial on the separate batches was undertaken to achieve the right balance, enhanced complexity and mouthfeel. The emerging wine thereafter received a light fining, progressing through to cold stabilisation prior to bottling on 11th August 2023, under screwcap.
