Mission Hill Terroir Collection No. 32 Vista's Edge Cabernet Franc 2016

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOnly the top 3 percent of estate fruit makes it into the Terroir Series wines, a selection that best expresses the specific microclimate of special sites. This came from Osoyoos east and is clone 2014. Post-ferment, this spent 18 months in French oak (25 percent of which was new). Perfumed blueberry, plum, cherry and ample peppery notes filter through this long wine, one lined with firm, grippy, graphite sides. All are held up with a lovely raft of freshness, much more than 2015, keeping this bigger wine lively on the palate.Tasted: 19 October 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 50.00 out of stock Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
