2017 Mission Estate Sauvignon Blanc | The Local Drop

2017 Mission Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Hawkes Bay, New Zealand


Winemaker: Paul Mooney
Vineyard/Year: Mission Estate / 2017
Being poured at: Il Solito Posto

Established in 1851 by the French Marist religious order, Mission Estate Winery is New Zealand’s oldest winery.

This wine very much reflects the 2017 vintage, where the summer was a little cooler. The flavours are consequently very intense.

Tasting notes

The colour is pale. The bouquet has fresh grapefruit, floral, herbal and passion fruit aromas. In the mouth the wine has very good weight and texture with fine acidity. The finish is juicy with good weight,and has an incredibly long finish.
