Mission Estate is the birthplace of New Zealand wine, when our founders built the first winery in Hawke's Bay in 1851. We are very proud to be New Zealand's oldest winemaker. In one of the most sustainable wineries in the country we create our current collection of Mission Estate, Vineyard Selection, Reserve and Jewelstone award-winning wines. With advanced viticultural practices and a progressive winemaking team, we have a long-standing reputation for quality and over-delivering at every price point. Housed in an elegantly restored historic seminary building with sweeping views of Napier, Mission Estate offers visitors a year round complete wine experience. A visit to the cellar door provides an opportunity to try the extensive range of wines and for those interested in history, the twice daily historic walk is a must. Lunch or dinner can be enjoyed seven days in the renowned Mission restaurant, and the adjoining Chapel provides the ideal venue for a picturesque wedding reception or conference Read more »

  • Mission Estate Winery Chardonnay Hawkes Bay Reserve 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Open on the nose with rather earthy, lightly foresty aromas under a nice hard mineral/steel note, accenting apple fruit and topped with light smoke nuances. This is somehow intense but with a since of delicacy. On the palate there is lovely purity and cut as this offers up lightly earthy apple peel notes, firm citron pith and a touch of quince,...

  • Mission Estate Winery Syrah Hawkes Bay 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Toasty, cocoa, white pepper and pretty clear wild raspberry and redcurrant fruit aromas on the nose here. Cool and tense on entry with a fine elegant and fresh feel. This is really transparent with gentle meatiness backed up by soft berry fruit. Tannins here are really fine, ripe, small yet tense, though a bit more flavor intensity wouldnt hurt.... Read More

  • I've been powering through wines from Spain, South Africa, and Chile. I've got say that of all of them the Carmeneres ahve been the most surpring. You've got to like a bit of herbaceousness in your wines, which I do, but in general they were some really distinctive and intresting wines. For summer the Rose season is apon us but I have yet to be ...

  • Living in Sonoma County my cellar is pretty Cali-Centric. I mean in an earthquake it just may break off and fall into the Pacific Ocean. So tonight I'm going with something completely different. I picked up an El Nido Clio 2008 that I'm giving a test drive to see if I want more. Anything other than California wine or Rhones and I am treading on ... Read More

  • Mission Hill Family Estate Reserve Pinot Noir 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A lovely Pinot done in the old style. Aromas of dark berries, cooking spice and toast with flavors of raspberry, spice, a delicate earthiness and oak. Elegantly balanced with a long silky finish. Read More

  • I loved GDP's article on corkage fees, guidance, and what to expect.  I did, however, feel there were some regional/establishment level variabilities though. I will start by saying that here in the suburbs of SF bay area (CA, USA), corkage fees can be ridiculous for what you get (cheap glasses, lack of service) AND corresponding wine lists can b...

  • What are the "must-have-wines" when you visit a wine bar?  Or just stuff you'd really like to see. This can become tricky with "by-the-glass" stuff, because I imagine people can become quite cautious with a glass of wine above the $12 figure. Any insights?? Read More
