Mission Hill Perpetua 2006 Chardonnay (West Bank, British Columbia)
Decanted: 0 hr
Cost: $32.99 (BC Liquor Store)
Tasting notes: A true Canadian Icon white. The nose was subtle with a hint of popcorn butter and pear (I caught some light floral) that extended into the palate. An elegant and smooth Chardonnay.
Now I love the La Frenz Chardonnay but this one tops it. This is one of the best whites I have had this year. This was shared amongst friends while watching the Vancouver’s Celebration of Light from the best seat in the house. While Canada put on an amazing display of fireworks, Canada’s Mission Hill put on an amazing display in wine making. Extremely good! - HC
