Mission Hill Reserve Meritage White 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe MHFE Reserve series always offers value, but this 80/20 Meritage mix of sauvignon blanc and semillon grown in Oliver and Osoyoos estates is a super bargain. Just over 60 percent is fermented in stainless steel, the remainder in French oak, of which 15 percent was new. The nose is highly attractive with melon, citrus, and wood spice notes. The attack is fresh and vibrant with creamy mid-palate textures and intense flavours of passionfruit, guava, pineapple, and more spice. The balance is perfect, and the alcohol a minimum of 13 percent. This is a winner, and I suspect as good as it is, it will improve in the bottle for another year or three.Tasted: 08 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.99 BCLS Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
