Mission ‘Estate’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

14-Aug-2017
2017 was a generally challenging wine vintage throughout New Zealand with some of the North Island regions affected by rain. Further south, it was more a situation of attaining adequate ripeness, and those with large crops would have not fared as well as might have been expected. Owning and managing one’s vineyards gives greater control, especially with regards to canopy management and yields, and generally, the wines from such sites have avoided unripeness, harsh acidity and phenolics, and provided drinkability. Here, I review the Mission Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017, made from fruit from the company’ Blind River’ Awatere vineyard. www.missionestate.co.nz
