Mission Hill Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Mission Hill Reserve Series is crazy excellent value, and each year it simply outdoes the previous version. Case in point, the 2017 sauvignon blanc. Multiple pick times bring a vibrancy and freshness to this wine. Some 20 percent of the wine spends time in oak and concrete (split about 50/50) while the balance remains on its lees in stainless steel. Look for a tropical pineapple, citrus nose that previews a taut, dry, lemongrass, lime palate and finishes with a creamy, sagebrush scented note. Impressive value.
