Mission Estate Merlot-Cabernet Franc Jewelstone Single Vineyard 2010 (Cabernet Franc)

Mission Estate Winery

The story begins with a group of French Missionaries who sailed to New Zealand in 1838 with little more than their faith and a few vines. Mission Estate was established by these Missionaries in Hawke's Bay in 1851, where vines were planted to produce both sacramental and table wine, and New Zealand's first winery was born. The first record of a commercial sale dates back to 1870 when a parcel of mostly dry reds was sold.

Mission has never lost sight of its French heritage, as over the years Brothers of the Order have travelled to France to study and learn viticulture and winemaking skills. Our current winemaker Paul Mooney has been at Mission for over 30 years, and was originally trained by the Fathers.

At 'La Grande Maison' of Mission Estate there is still one row of Muscat grapes that have been grafted over the years from the very original stock bought to Hawke's Bay by the Marist Fathers.

To experience what 160 years of winemaking tastes like, view and purchase from our extensive range of Mission Estate wines.

Mission Estate Merlot-Cabernet Franc Jewelstone Single Vineyard 2010

The Gimblett Gravels region in the famed Hawke's Bay has become one of New Zealand's fine wine regions with some wines outclassing several Bordeaux First Growths. The 2009 vintage of this wine did just that at a blind tasting in Hong Kong and at less than half the Jewelstone's modest price too.
The 2010 vintage is just as good however you'll find it more in the style of Pomerol than Médoc. Aged mostly in (expensive) new oak this seriously good red is ripe, rich and smooth.
Leads off with cedar and vanilla notes, but develops plenty of dark, chocolaty flavours on the palate, giving a sense of richness and depth. It's up there with the world's best. Decant and enjoy on special occasions.

This wine showed a very dense colour. Mainly strawberry smell. Its flavour reminds me of wild berries.
I definetely wouldn't pair this wine with fish dishes.
All of my friends were delighted about this wine.
My girlfriend once brought home a bottle.
The Mission Estate Merlot-Cabernet Franc Jewelstone Single Vineyard has a special body.
