Mission Jewelstone 2014 Syrah and 2013 Antoine

28-Aug-2015
The Mission ‘Jewelstone’ wines are the most idiosyncratic for the company. Stylistically they are varied and clearly made by winemaker Paul Mooney to respect the special parcels of fruit they are sourced from, rather than having a style philosophy imposed on them. That said, the depth of character and individuality are prime, and the wines are aromatic and refined. With these traits, the ‘Jewelstone’ wines have become favourites of the serious wine enthusiast. I recently reviewed the current ‘Jewelstone’ range (click here to see), and now I review two up-coming releases, the 2014 Syrah and 2013 ‘Antoine’, that latter wine a tribute to Father Antoine Garin, Mission’s pioneering winemaker who first produced wine in New Zealand in the 1840s. www.missionestate.co.nz
