Mission Hill Compendium 2017 (1 bottle) A Compendium is a compilation of concise items on a subject, in this case, the combination of soil, climate, clone selection, and hand-harvesting of grape clusters to create this unique wine. The fruit was selected from specifically designated blocks within our estate vineyards. Compendium is a 62/29/9 mix of Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cabernet Franc that comes off selected blocks in Osoyoos, close to the US border. It is fermented in small French fermenters and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. Compendium has grown over the years, favouring a more singular style, meshing components early on for a long run in the bottle. Even at 14.6 percent alcohol, there is a sense of balance. A late start and a hot summer shortened the crop, concentrating the berries and intensifying the flavours. The attack is quite harmonious, with cassis and black cherry mixing with licorice and dense, sweet, elegant tannins with the complexity you crave at this price point.

Mission Hill Quatrain 2017 (1 bottle) Quatrain is four lines of verse that Mission Hill interprets as four varietals giving balance and structure to this wine. They painstakingly managed each vine from distinct blocks to ensure perfect ripeness and opulent flavours from their vineyard estates in eastern Osoyoos (87%) and the Black Sage Bench in Oliver (13%). This unique cuvée was fermented in small, specially designed-French oak fermenters. It was aged in French oak barrels for 15 months. 42 barrels produced. The wine introduces itself with a nose distinguished by perfumed violets and blue fruits, nuances of black pepper, and savoury spices. The palate brings a rich concentration of ripe bramble fruit and impressions of sweet licorice and earthiness. The satin-smooth finish is beautifully persistent with a silky fine-grained texture to the finish.
