Anyone even passingly familiar with my perennial drinking habits understands that I’ve always been rather partial to a well-crafted rosé, and so I was most eager to taste the 2021 Mission Hill Family Estate Rosé Reserve.
Many years ago, when I was working as wine columnist for Chatelaine magazine, I often recommended Mission Hill wines, and not only because they were some of the only BC wines with decent Ontario distribution; ever since I had been introduced to them by the great Peter Bodnar Rod in the early aughties, I had consistently found them to be remarkably solid (not to mention extremely polished) wines, all across the board.
In today’s video I sit down with winemaker Corrie Krehbiel for a discussion about this excellent release, only available directly from the winery, here.
It’s a bottling that’s certainly worth picking up if you are looking for a Canadian rosé with just a touch of the Provençal, but as Corrie warns in our interview, it sells out every year, so I’d advise that you don’t dilly dally.
