Mission ‘The Avenue’ Cabernet Merlot 2011

21-Oct-2015
Mission Estate has ‘The Avenue’ label for a Gimblett Gravels blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The wine is offered primarily in the U.K. in export markets. Winemaker Paul Mooney says "when we assembled our 2011 Hawkes Bay reds out of barrel we chose the best barrel selection for the ‘Antoine’ Cabernet/Merlot. The second best selection was this ‘Avenue’ Cabernet/Merlot and the other ‘Reserve’ reds were blended subsequently”. Here, I review the 2011 vintage. www.missionestate.co.nz
