Mills Reef Elspeth Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (Hawke’s Bay)
“Cabernet marches across the palate...” the saying goes, and this one certainly does that. It is an imperious wine, brimming with cassis, blue fruit, mocha and cedary spice notes. In the background, rumbling away, are round, bold tannins. Such a generous, hearty style needs a food match in kind. Try it with the Sunday roast.
