Mission Hill Terroir Collection Border Vista Vineyard Rosé 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Osoyoos' loamy-sanded Border Vista Vineyard, and altitudes 330-360m, this is a striking, salty and pointed blend of merlot, cabernet franc, and syrah. It was fermented in 75% steel, with the remainder in neutral French oak. The streamlined palate is lined with summer strawberries, wild plum, pink grapefruit, and tangerine, bedded with light lees, and streaming with mineral salts that lure on the finish—polished, elegant, and sophisticated; quite impressive.Tasted: 14 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.00 winery and online exclusive Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
