A Hot Summer Always Brings Out The Best

Mission Estate

A hot summer always brings out the best and that can certainly be said for the new release of the 2017 Estate Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand’s oldest winery, Mission Estate!

The fruit for this wine was sourced from Mission’s own Cable Station Road vineyard in Marlborough’s stunning Awatere Valley. The Awatere Valley enjoys long sunny days and consistent warmth during the summer months resulting in a wine with intense flavours and classical varietal character.

Paul Mooney, Winemaker at Mission Estate, says: “2017 could be classified as an elegant vintage and the Sauvignon Blanc off our Cable Station Road vineyard shows very good promise with lovely intensity and balanced acidities.”

Pale in colour, this wine is full of flavour with hints of fresh grapefruit, floral, herbal and passion fruit aromas.
