Sacred Hill 2017 and 2016 ‘Orange Label’ Releases and a 2016 ‘Reserve’ Red

The Sacred Hill label has been one of the success stories of Hawke’s Bay. The Mason family have grown the business enormously to make a full range of Hawke’s Bay classical varieties, at all the different tiers to meet all aspects of the markets. The company has acquired brands and developed extra vineyards not only in Hawke’s Bay, but also extensively in Marlborough. The flagship ‘Special Selection’ wines are sensational (click here to see my reviews of the ‘Special Selection’ 2016 Chardonnays and 2015 Reds), and can be counted among the best of the country’s wines. However, it is the ubiquitous and very accessible ‘Orange Label’ wines that drive the Sacred Hill brand, and are seen in all the regular channels of distribution. Here, I review a selection of 2017 and 2016 ‘Orange Label’ wines and a 2016 ‘Reserve’ red, from the next tier up. www.sacredhill.com
