Mill's Reef 1998 Reserve Hawke's Bay Chardonnay

The Mills Reef Winery is located in the Bay of Plenty region but the grapes for this wine were sourced from Hawke's Bay. It is a rich, gold color with a nose that is pure Chardonnay grape. Delicate citrus on the palate and a touch of oak.

Price in the DC area was US$19. This wine does not have the structure to go up against a fully integrated California Chard but its not going to cost that much either. A decent value in the mid-price range.
