The ultimate expression of wine making at Mission, Huchet wines proudly honour Brother Cyprian Huchet.
The son of a French vigneron from the Loire, he became New Zealand’s pioneering winemaker whilst working at Mission in 1871. These wines are produced in very limited quantities and only from outstanding years. His inspiration, a legacy Mission Estate proudly continue.
This 2018 cabernet sauvignon is complex and intense showing black currant, blackberry, tobacco, mint and savoury notes. A cacophony of forest fruits and herbal notes, the palate is full bodied and robust with great power, depth of flavour and a long finish.
The vintage will cellar gracefully for 10-20 years - the perfect gift or special occasion wine, it comes packed in its own individual gift box.
