Mission Estate Hawke's Bay Pinot Gris 2018 (Pinot Gris)

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.

Your rating for Mission Estate Hawke's Bay Pinot Gris 2018:Rate Mission Estate Hawke's Bay Pinot Gris 2018:

4 /5

The wine displays primary fruit characters typical with Pinot Gris, reminiscent of pear and apple. It has citrus overtones that typify white wines from the Church Road parcel. The palate is soft and approachable with an appealing fresh acidity that makes this wine ideal for current consumption. It shows good intensity and richness with a full round mouth feel. The palate will gain intensity and length on the finish with one to two years bottle maturation.
