Reviews and Ratings

RESERVE / Juicy black plums and sweet mocha notes from oak aging on this BC Shiraz. Smooth and supple with a seductive cracked black pepper finish. Grapes are hand-selected and harvested from select blocks within the estate vineyards. Almost inky black in the glass. Pair with grilled steak. MINE: From the Okanagan Valley wine region in British Columbia, Mission Hill's Shiraz (2013) is dark purple in in the glass with juicy black plums and tertiary mocha notes on the palate from oak aging, finishing with spicy, cracked black pepper. Tannins are smooth and supple. Grapes for this wine were hand-selected and harvested from select blocks in the estate vineyards. Pair with grilled steak. OTHER: Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: This medium(+) body Okanagan Shiraz is celebrating it's 4th birthday and showing lots of vibrant black plum and succulent fresh bitten cherry. There's plenty of black pepper and sweet Christmas cake spices to suit this varietal's fans. Some more mature notes of leather, earth, and chocolate are emerging yet tannins are youthful/grainy. There's lots of time left in this bottle. Perfect hamburger wine - summer is around the corner. Enjoyed as well with Prime Rib roast. Tasted: February 2017. OTHER: 87% Shiraz, 10% Cabernet Franc, 3% Viognier. A fragrant blackberry nose with hints of brambles. The palate shows lively blackberry, fig and damson fruit with plum tannins on the finish. Score - 95 (Decanter World Wine Awards, 2018). - 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.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
