Mission Hill Reserve Shiraz

Mission Hill Reserve Shiraz 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA warm, dry summer resulted in a crop of small, concentrated berries that played into the voluminous, Oz-style of this shiraz. Look for a lavish, rambling, peppery affair with sweet blackberries, black plums streaked with vanilla. Open, soft, and savoury, serve this now with beef ribs, pork ribs or chicken swathed in barbecue sauce. There is a small amount of viognier (three percent), in the mix that spent 14 months in wood: 20% new French, 65% used French, and 15 percent used American lumber.Tasted: 08 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 26.99 BCLS, winery direct, private wine shops AB 28.00 private wine stores ON 27.00 consignment - Mark Anthony Brands QC 28.00 SK 27.00 Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
