Mills Reef Reserve Marlborough Pinot Noir 2020

$24.00$264.00

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

Delightfully approachable, yet complex, this supple rich Marlborough Pinot Noir exudes sweet cherry and lavender aromas, with vibrant boysenberry fruit flavours, beautifully complemented with fruit cake spice and savoury oak. Velvety refined tannins lead to a mouthfilling and a lingering finish.

    Vineyards and Winemaking

    The grapes for this generous wine were grown in the Marlborough region, on low yielding vines. After a long hot summer and the vines in perfect health the grapes were picked at ideal ripeness and flavour profile.

    The grapes were gently crushed and allowed to cold soak for 3 days to extract important colour and flavour components. Fermentation proceeded with light plunging for further colour, flavour and fine tannin extraction. After a short post ferment skin contact regime, the resulting wine was then sent to barrel for sixteen months ageing in quality French oak (20% new wood) to enhance its natural structure. The wine received a light egg white fining and was cross flow filtered prior to bottling on 14th December 2021 under screwcap closure.
