Mission ‘Barrique Reserve’ 2017 Chardonnay and Syrah, and 2016 Pinot Noir and Cabernet

10-Sep-2018

There have been some subtle changes in the winemaking at Mission Estate, with Paul Mooney who has been with the company for over 35 years now overseeing the making of both the Mission and Ngatarawa wines. Alex Roper is the dedicated Mission winemaker and James Ostergren looks after Ngatarawa. Both Mission and Ngatarawa have clearly defined tiers. The Mission ‘Estate’ wines are the core for the company, with ‘Barrique Reserve’ the premium tier. Above that are the ‘Jewelstone’ and limited-release ‘Huchet’ bottlings. Here, I review a selection of new releases from the ‘Barrique Reserve’ range: the 2017 Chardonnay, 2016 Pinot Noir, 2017 Syrah and 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon. www.missionestate.co.nz
