The acquisition in 2012 of an exciting, 100 hectare vineyard in the Awatere region of Marlborough, opens the next chapter in Mission Estate's long history. Situated in the Blind River region of Awatere Valley, our site is within 2 kilometres of Clifford Bay which provides moderating influence on the climate. The exceptional soils and very good drainage are factors which have a positive influence on the aromatics of wines off this site, giving the wines produced their great texture and minerality.
Size: 100 hectares
Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Noir
