In 1994, John Simes, who directs the winemaking for Mission Hill and for its new spin-off, Prospect Winery, put the Okanagan on the world wine map by winning the top Chardonnay trophy at that year’s International Wine & Spirits Competition in London. That 1992 award winner is long gone – but this wine has all the qualities of that legendary bottle, and perhaps a bit more. Fermented 30 percent in American oak, the wine has a touch of sweet vanilla that adds richness and complexity to the aroma. The 7 ½ months it spent on the lees has contributed a luscious richness on the palate. The wine tastes of ripe pears, peaches and citrus, with an undertone of honey. Big and generous on the palate, the wine has a lingering finish. 89 points. The curious label refers to an Okanagan tradition, a Christmas Day count of the resident birds, that was begun by a naturalist in 1905.
