Mission Estate Reserve Syrah

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
A rich and toasty nose here. This has plenty of mocha-scented oak and graphite, dark plum and blackberry fruit, spice and hints of pepper too _ very concentrated and brash. The palate delivers a smooth, slate-like tannin glide that carries black plum and spice flavours long and even. Fresh finish.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Intense, spicy, plum aromas layered with meaty and peppery elements. The structured palate is long and elegant, with lots of pepper and spice, and is very Rhone-ish in character.

Nick Stock (2009 Vintage) says
An all-together more complex wine than the standard syrah, with a breezy spice and pepper layer, some creamy oak, earth and ripe, dark-fruits all interplaying nicely. The palate's elegant and structured; fine firm tannins run the length, and there's a juicy red-fruit finish that leaves the palate fresh.

Rob Geddes MW (2007 Vintage) says
Appealing fruit intensity and power: blackberry with black and white pepper spice herald a detailed, medium-bodied palate with a good spine of tannin and sweet blueberry fruit, soft tannins and great length.

Simple confectionery fruit nose and creamy palate with tight flavour profile and earthy complexity.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
Still on the market, the 2000 vintage was made from low-cropping (5 tonnes/hectare) vines at Gimblett Road, in Hawke's Bay, and matured for a year in French oak barriques (40 per cent new). Deeply coloured and weighty, it offers strong blackcurranr, plum, herb and spice flavours, with a slightly high-acid finish.
