Profound, complex, finessed.
Mission Hill's Terroir Collection are wines made from single sites. This one from the warm East Osoyoos Border Vista Vineyard. A warm and dry 2017 vintage produced small but intensely flavoured berries, which shows in this exceptional Syrah.
Expect expressive blackberry, blueberry and cherry fruit aromas woven with dark chocolate, adobo, white pepper, espresso and vague notes of licorice and grilling meat. The palate is also savoury, meaty and toasted with black/purple fruits, mocha and spice. It is a profound and powerful wine with finesse and balance. Lengthy and complex, it is a wonderful addition to any cellar. Drinking well now, but it will continue to evolve over the next 3-5 years.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper
