Mission Hill Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe reserve tier from Mission Hill focuses on estate fruit, consistent vineyards from year to year and premium lot selection. The sauvignon blanc comes from their vineyards in Osoyoos, and the ripe passion fruit and papaya on the nose reflect the warmer growing area. Pink grapefruit, gooseberry, pear and peach fuzz on the textured, medium weight palate, amped up a bit with lees and raspy spice. Finishes crisp and grapefruit tart. I would pair this with citrus dressed prawns or fish tacos with lime aioli.Tasted: 05 March 2015Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.00 specialty listing ON 20.00 NB 20.00 Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
