Mission Hill winemaker John Simes began his career in New Zealand, which helps explain his sure touch with Sauvignon Blanc. When Simes came to the Okanagan in 1992, there was little if any of the variety even planted here. It has been adopted quickly since then. Currently, with almost 300 acres in the ground, it is the fifth most planted white variety in British Columbia.Well-made wines like Mission Hill’s Sauvignon Blanc have helped drive the consumer acceptance of the varietal. Most of this wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, but 17% was barrel-fermented, adding a touch of complexity to this exuberant wine. The gooseberry and citrus aromas virtually jump from the glass. On the palate, there is lots of gooseberry and grapefruit, with a mouth-watering acidity. The finish is refreshingly zesty. A touch of flint also defines the structure. 89 points.
