Mission Hill Legacy Collection

The wines.

This week, two wines from the Okanagan Valley, but a caution. If you buy them to gift to special friends, you will want to have at least one for yourself too. From the Legacy Collection at Mission Hill Family Estates come wines that are exemplars of the heights our local winemaking can hit. Each is worth every penny. Perpetua is a glorious chardonnay, full of opulent, focused fruit balanced with fine acidity. Some Old World influence, for sure. $35. Quatrain is a blend of: merlot 35%, syrah 30%, cabernet sauvignon 20%, cabernet franc 15%. It is bursting with ripe, lush fruit, has great structure, and will reward your patience in waiting a few years to drink it. Then again, it will reward your impatience, should you drink it tonight. $50.
