Easter is being celebrated a little earlier than expected at Mission Estate, after picking up two gold awards and one silver at the prestigious Royal Easter Show.
Easter Show Wine Awards 2016:
Gold
  • Mission Estate Gimblett Gravels Reserve Syrah 2014
  • Mission Estate Gimblett Gravels Jewelstone Syrah 2014
Silver
  • Mission Estate Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2015

Peter Holley, CEO of Mission Estate, says: “It’s always extremely satisfying to be acknowledged for the time, effort and care that goes into our winemaking program.”

Whilst Mission Estate is New Zealand’s oldest winemaker, it is constantly looking for new ways to improve the quality of its wines. Paul Mooney, Winemaker at Mission Estate, says: “In recent years we’ve invested significantly in additional vineyards and ensuring we have the latest technology available in the winery. We’ve also been doing a lot of trial work around organics which has yielded some very encouraging results”. “Indeed our Gold Medal winning Jewelstone Syrah was produced entirely from fruit grown organically on our Mere Road Vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing Region” says Paul.

“Those wanting to try our award-winning wines should make the most of this time of year – as a glass of full-bodied Syrah goes perfectly with a chocolate!”
