Elegant and well structured, the front of the palate is full with soft mouth feel and fine flavours. They are reminiscent of citrus, such as grapefruit, with vanilla undertones from the oak. The finish is clean silky and lingers well. Established in 1851 by the French Marist religious order, Mission Estate Winery is New Zealands oldest winemaker.
