MILLS REEF BESPOKE CABERNETS
Even, dark ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter edged. This has a subtly full and voluminous nose with very refined aromatic expression, showing fragrant redcurrants with nuances of blackcurrants. The nose unfolds a little nutty oak detail. This is elegant and beautifully aromatic. Medium-bodied, the palate is refined and elegantly presented with sweetly rich and juicy redcurrant fruit flavours entwined with blackcurrant fruit notes. The fruit is fragrant and focussed, unveiling a little dark herb and nutty oak interest. The tannins are very fine-grained, lending a velvety structure and mouthfeel, and the acidity is balanced and integrated, but lends good freshness. The wine flows easily to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a beautifully elegant and fragrant Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc blend with sweet redcurrant fruit with subtle currant and herb detail on a smooth, fine-textured palate. Serve with lamb and beef dishes and Mediterranean fare over the next 5-7 years.
