Mission Hill Terroir Collection Border Vista Syrah 2017

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBorder Vista is a west-facing, single vineyard estate property in East Osoyoos. A mix of new and old French oak is used for 14 months to add a polished sheen to this plush red wine with super smooth edges. Big and youthful, it is less wild than its contemporaries, but it also a pure style with no reduction, letting its floral, blackberry, blueberry shine through before the pepper and spice take over. It’s all grown on loamy sand with no stones in a site that speaks to the round, silky textures that will attract many. Turkey or roast suckling pig would be a fine match.Tasted: 09 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 50.00 winery and online exclusive Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
