The Terroir Collection showcases the Okanagan Valley’s unique microclimates and diversity. The top 3% of all of Mission Hill’s estate fruit is hand-selected for these wines by the winemaker and each individual lot is carefully tasted throughout the winemaking process to ensure its quality level before the final blend. Because of this extra care, each offering is very limited with only a small amount of select barrels handcrafted.
The Crosswinds Syrah is one of two wines in the Terroir Collection that is farmed from a single vineyard estate property in East Osoyoos. A mix of new and old French oak affords a plushness on the palate that extends to the finish. Named after the crosswinds that gently pass across the lakes and up and down the valley. Crosswinds is also a poetic reference to the border crossing between Canada and the United States as well as the crossing of the high desert and lakes creating a unique microclimate.
