Description

Since 2008, a range of twelve Gimblett Gravels red wines have been independently selected to represent the Gravels with the aim to gain a better perspective of where Gimblett Gravel wines stand in any given year as well as charting the evolution of progression of the wines from this unique terroir. The Mission Jewelstone Antoine 2019 cut the mustard, being selected as part of this top 12 wines. 2019 being hailed as the vintage of the century for Hawkes Bay and the Gravels and clearly for Mission as well. Antoine is a sensational wine, scintillatingly pure and endlessly complex. A Merlot dominant blend with Cab Sav and Cab Franc, the wine spent 18 months in 60% new French Oak barrels to temper and season the opulent fruit profile. Very youthful right now and best decanted if drunk before 2028 and will be at its best around 2030, with no hurry from there.

Smells

Strikingly pure and floral, with violets, cedar, iron, tobacco, blackcurrant, plum and liquorice.

Tastes

Fresh and focused in the mouth, there is marvellous concentration, and a solid core of fine tannins and juicy acid working in perfect harmony. A wonderful example of the Bordeaux blend from one of the Hawke's Bay's greatest ever vintages, this is a wine to buy a case of and enjoy over the next 15-20 years.
