Mission Hill's Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is zesty with pink grapefruit, soft stone fruit, tropical fruit and light herbal flavours and creamy on the palate Great poise and elegance. A portion of the wine spends time in oak and concrete while the remainder spends time on its lees in stainless steel. This vintage was awarded Silver Medal at the 2018 National Wine Awards of Canada.

Reserve Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: grilled salmon with herb butter, green salads with goat cheese, freshly steamed shrimp with salad.

Reviews and Ratings

This is a fantastically zesty V.Q.A. Sauvignon Blanc from the iconic Mission Hill Winery in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia V.Q.A. Perfect poise, balance with pink grapefruit, soft stone fruit, tropical fruit and light herbal flavours. Creamy on the palate and not overpowering, kind of creeps up on you and stays for a while. A portion of the wine spends time in oak and concrete while the remainder spends time on its lees in stainless steel. Great chilled on its own. Pair with green salads topped with grilled chicken breast. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
