Mission Hill Terroir Collection Pinot Noir Simes Vineyard 2018

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaDamp forest, cedar, smoke and ample green notes dominate this East Kelowna single vineyard pinot noir (clone 667) from the beginning through the finish. An altitude of 420-450m keeps things fresh, while the fine silt and clay soils give this heft. This spent 10 months in French oak, which is felt in the cedar stave spicing throughout. A bit too green for most, and a bit too wooded for some, give this youthful wine some airtime and keep an eye on future vintages; the acidity is spot on.Tasted: 04 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 50.00 wine club member exclusive Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
