Mission Hill Compendium 2018

$81.99

In 1981, the Okanagan was largely undiscovered as a wine region, instead it was renowned for the quality of its stonefruit orchards. Grape growers were just beginning to take risks, planting vines in unproven terrain.

Despite these risks, the glacier-formed valley offered varying soil profiles, long, hot growing days, and diverse microclimates. These distinct subregions posed an opportunity to cultivate wine with unmistakable terroir. This potential inspired Mission Hill Family Estate’s vision for the future of Okanagan wine.

Now, after being recognized as Canada’s only five-time winner of Winery of the Year and receiving multiple best varietal awards on the international stage, we continue to draw inspiration from the valley and the vineyards we tend to. For us, the journey is just beginning.

The Legacy Collection is the ultimate expression of the Okanagan Valley. In our relentless pursuit of quality, we select the top fruit from our estate vineyards, hand-harvest, and hand-sort each block. These small-lot wines are our most coveted cellar-worthy collection.

A combination of soil, climate, and clone selection come together in harmonious integration to create this unique, incredibly balanced Bordeaux blend. The porous soil forces the vines to search for nutrients resulting in elegant and luscious fruit.
