Mission 2017 ‘VS’ Chardonnay and Syrah, and 2016 ‘Reserve’ Cabernet Sauvignon


Mission Estate in Hawke’s Bay is very successful with its ‘Estate’ wines which are representative of variety and region, while offering accessibility in terms of style, as well as price. One need only go up one tier to the ‘Vineyard Selection’ wines to have bottlings which capture the essence of a vineyard. The next level up is the ‘Reserve’ range, which is the premium tier for Mission Estate. These are serious wines which have complexities and the ability to develop positively with time in bottle. The ‘Reserve’ wines are second only to the limited release ‘Jewelstone’ wines, which are Mission’s flagships. Here, I review the 2017 ‘Vineyard Selection’ Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay and Syrah, along with the 2016 ‘Reserve’ Cabernet Sauvignon. www.missionestate.co.nz
