Mission Estate VS Sauvignon Blanc
This single vineyard wine was grown on Mission's Cable Station vineyard in Marlborough's Awatere Valley. The wine shows concentrated passion fruit and grapefruit aromas. The palate is full with good intensity and a superb long finish.
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is soft and gently full with aromas of passionfruit and gooseberries entwined harmoniously with notes of cut grass and nettles." Raymond Chan
Mission Estate VS Pinot Noir
Mission's Estate has chosen their very best grapes grown in the Awatere Valley for their Vineyard Selection Pinot Noir. They were selected from a portion of the vineyard that was carefully managed with fruit thinning to encourage optimal ripeness and flavour development.
It shows good concentration of bright red cherry, forest floor and wild berry aromas, more fruit on the palate with a soft, rich mouthfeel. The wine has a fine structure and really fantastic fruit intensity, supple mouthfeel and a great finish. Drinking really well now but with potential to age well over the next 5-10 years.
"Garnet-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rime with some bricking. The nose is soft and ethereally full with a broad array of aromatic red berry fruits along with restrained notes of savoury dried herbs, elements of earth and red floral nuances." Raymond Chan
