Mills Reef Reserve Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017 $23.99

If you’re able to get your hands on this vintage then you’re a lucky sausage – because there’s precious little available and yet it’s drinking SOOOOO (that’s 5 ‘o’s so it’s a banger)  nicely.  Smooth and cherry-driven, layered with black tea and cocoa and showing a luscious lengthy finish.  From what was a challenging vintage has bloomed an easy, breezy, very tasty wine.
