Wine review: Mission Hill Five Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2012, British Columbia Add to ...

  • Rating 88
  • Year 2012
  • Region Okanagan
  • Varietal Sauvignon blanc
  • Price $15.95

They’ve changed up the label look of this popular Five Vineyards line at Mission Hill in the Okanagan. It’s cleaner and more handsome-looking. The aesthetic shift for this particular varietal, sauvignon blanc, also coincides with the 2012 growing season, a marked departure from the more challenging 2011 and 2010. Though light and dry, the wine is silky and delivers fleshy opulence in the form of passion fruit and a whisper of banana over a zippy, lemon-melon character; $14.99 in B.C., various prices in Alberta, $15.99 in Saskatchewan, $16.99 in Manitoba, $18.99 in Newfoundland.
