Mission Hill Terroir Collection No. 23 Crosswinds Syrah 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Terroir Collection is all about meso-climate and place, and the top three percent of estate fruit as hand-selected by winemaker Darryl Brooker. This syrah is named after the crosswinds that pass across the lakes and up and down the valley as well as the crossing of the high desert and lakes. Elegance and power describe this delicious wine available to Mission Hill Wine Club members. Black cherries and sagebrush with pepper and olive tapenade stuff this wine full of flavour and density but with a sense of elegance. Love the tannin management, and the potential here to go long. Very impressive refinement, capturing the site and the power but with all the elegance. Cellar through 2024 with ease.Tasted: 10 September 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 50.00 winery direct and club members Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
