Mission ‘Estate’ 2018, 2017 and 2016 New Releases

14-Aug-2018

Winegrowing since 1851, Mission Estate is truly venerable. There are few truly venerable wine producers in New Zealand, but those that qualify have the experience to ensure that they provide good wine that the general consumer can afford regularly, as well as making wines at the forefront of innovation and quality, which can be expensive. Lessons learned making cutting-edge wines filter down to the lower tiers, and as a whole the wine producer continues to make progress. At the highest level, Mission Estate has the limited bottling ‘Huchet’ wines with the ‘Jewelstone’ tier just under that. Then come the ‘Reserve’ wines which are of a very high standard as well. It is the ‘Estate’ range which is the ‘workhorse’, and these give the company its commercial viability and visibility. Here, I review a selection of new ‘Estate’ releases, from the 2018, 2017 and 2016 vintages. www.missionestate.co.nz
