Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Brilliant. Reserve Chardonnay by Mission Hill. Declared at 13.8% ABV. Okanagan Valley VQA. This wine offers brilliant aromatics of ripe pineapple, mango, unripe banana, burnt toffee, hint of ginger root. Well-balanced, medium plus bodied, medium plus acidity, vibrant topical fruit, dry and ready to enjoy. This wine is drinking well now. Pairs well with bbq chicken. Tasted 2015 vintage in Nov 2017. 91 points. #bespoketastings #wow
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Reserve Chardonnay from Okanagan Valley’s Mission Hill. Pleasant pineapple, golden apple, with a refreshing splash of citrus. Topical elements of banana, vanilla and delicate buttery caramel showing a traditional creamy mouthfeel. Well balanced with medium plus alert acidity and a buoyant body and finish. Pair with thin crust herbed Bechamel pizza. 90 points
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Fresh delightful aromas and flavours. Prominent notes include yellow apple, peach, pear, citrus blossom and mild sweet baking spice notes. The palate is dry and mouthwatering with mild buttery texture throughout the finish. A prime Chardonnay for East Coast Chowder. Tasted Nov 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
