Mission Estate Merlot Cabernet (2014)

Neuseelands erstes Weingut 1851

 Das älteste Weingut Neuseeland im Bereich Hawkes Bay (North Island) wurde im Jahre 1851 von französischen Missionaren gegründet. Seit damals ist es in Besitz von „The Catholic Society of Mary“. Die Weingärten mit 32 Hektar Rebfläche sind mit den Sorten Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Pinot Gris und Riesling bestockt. y



The fruit was off the warmest inland sites in Hawke’s Bay. The soils on these vineyards are free-draining and stony, ideal for Hawke's Bay red varieties. These vineyards were carefully managed to fully ripen the fruit using techniques such as vine trimming, leaf plucking around the bunches, and fruit thinning to give a balanced crop load averaging 7 tonnes per hectare.
The grapes were fermented on skins, followed by a post fermentation maceration of up to 16 days. Pump-overs were carried out once a day to extract colour without over extraction. The wine went through malolactic fermentation and was then blended, oak-aged and stabilised before bottling to make a soft, smooth, fruit-driven style. The wine is a blend of Merlot (81%), Cab Sauvignon (17%) and Cabernet Franc (2%).
Tasting Notes
2014 enjoyed mild dry conditions towards the end of the vintage that gave good colour and attractive flavours in the fruit. This Merlot Cabernet has a bright colour with vibrant berry aromas and finely integrated oak. The wine shows bright fruit and a medium bodied palate with soft tannins and fine texture.
Cellar Potential
This wine has sufficient tannin and fruit to cellar for up to 4 years if stored correctly. It is made for drinking now but will develop particularly well over the next two years.
