Mills Reef Reserve Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2021

$25.00$270.00

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.

Clear

This complex Reserve Rosé is crafted in a dry style from premium Hawke's Bay grapes. With aromas of cherry blossom, it exudes lovely strawberry and raspberry flavours, complemented with subtle rock melon and red current notes. The palate is textural and full-bodied, yet delicate. Fresh and vibrant, enjoy on its own or with salmon and a beetroot, snow pea and goat cheese salad.

    Vineyards and Winemaking

    From a very warm, dry 2021 vintage, the grapes for this delightful Rose were grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle District of Hawke's Bay on alluvial and red metal soils.

    Harvested over 3 separate days, on arrival at the winery, the grapes were crushed and immediately pressed off the skins to yield a delightfully pale blush juice that was cold-settled and lightly fined. After racking, the juice was transferred to a stainless steel tank for fermentation with selected yeasts, which nurtured the vibrant fruit characters and structure of each parcel. At the completion of fermentation the wine was chilled to preserve optimal flavour and aroma. To best preserve the wine’s fine structure and flavours, it was lightly fined, filtered, and then bottled on the 4th of August 2021 under screwcap closure.
