WineDiva's Review

Plush, fragrant, supple.
The reserve range of Mission Hill's wines are fruit-forward and opulently-scented in style overall. The 2021 stays true to style with plush chocolate and plums, vanilla and licorice, baking spices, pip tobacco, espresso, cedar and dried flowers on the nose. It has a supple entry and generous fruit and spice flavours. Tobacco lingers on the finish. Approachable and delicious.
Overall, a solid red to pair with Camembert cheese and rich tomato based pastas, roasted meats.
