• 2012 Legacy Compendium VQ...

    A COMPENDIUM is a compilation of concise items on a subject, in our 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 vineyard estates in Osoyoos (95%) and Oliver (5%)
    where the porous soil forces the vines to search for nutrients. This struggle results
    in elegant and luscious fruit. Following fermentation and extended maceration,
    this wine was aged for 14 months in French oak barrels. 103 barrels produced.

  • 2012 Legacy Quatrain VQA

    2012 QUATRAIN is four lines of verse that we interpret as four varietals giving balance
    and structure to this wine. We painstakingly managed each vine from distinct
    blocks to ensure perfect ripeness and opulent flavours from our vineyard estates in
    eastern Osoyoos (80%) and the Black Sage Bench in Oliver (20%). This unique
    cuvée was fermented in small, specially designed French oak fermenters. It was
    aged in French oak barrels for 14 months. 82 barrels produced.

  • 2012 Oculus VQA

    An OCULUS was first used by the Romans in buildings like the Pantheon – a window in a dome or
    wall to the outside. At Mission Hill, our oculus provides the only natural light into our underground barrel cellar, blasted out of volcanic rock that is otherwise hidden from the world. Our complex Oculus Bordeaux-style wine is the result of meticulous selection in the vineyard estate with grapes that have been specifically nurtured for this rare wine. Hand-sorted grapes are gravity-filled into specially constructed French oak fermenters before gently laying the wine to rest in individual barrels. Rich and powerful, this wine was sourced from designated Oculus blocks in our eastern Osoyoos (94%) and Oliver (6%) vineyard estates from low-yielding vines. Aged 14 months in small French oak barrels followed by an additional 15 months in bottle prior to release. 76 barrels produced.

  • 2013 Legacy Perpetua VQA

    2013 PERPETUA means long-lasting…continuous, which represents to our family
    the concept of generations – our roots and our future. 100% harvested from
    three individual blocks in our eastern Osoyoos vineyard estate. Historic French
    Burgundian Dijon clones were used lending a unique flavour and aromatic
    profile. With limited skin contact, a select portion was fermented in new French
    oak, and aged sur lie for nine months with gentle hand-stirring every two weeks.
    42 barrels produced.
