Winemaker's Notes:

A vibrant and expressive wine boasting a bouquet vivid of lime, tangerine and a touch of pineapple. Similar flavours on the palate are enhanced with the subtle vanilla influence of new French oak. Elegant with lovely citrus wine fruit acidity this wine offers a fresh and lasting finish.

The ultra-premium S.L.C. Wines represent the height of the winemaking craft at Mission Hill Family Estate. Carefully selected fruit from designated vineyard lots is barrel aged in French oak to produce complex, balanced, age-worthy wines made with dedication and conviction.

About Mission Hill Family Estate:

Mission Hill Family Estate is situated in the heart of British Columbia's breathtaking Okanagan Valley wine country, one of the Pacific Northwest's undiscovered gems. Mission Hill's award-winning wines are a celebration of this unique terroir.

In the vineyards, a combination of science and intuition drives the selection of grape varietals best suited to the Okanagan Valley's diverse microclimates. Investments in technology, irrigation systems, frost protection and weather stations are all designed to encourage the production of premium fruit. Complete control of the process from planting to harvest is essential. At the winery, new presses, expanded barrel aging capacity and new temperature controlled underground cellars ferment and carefully age the wine under optimum conditions.
