2013 Oculus

2013 Oculus

An Oculus was first used by the Romans in buildings like the Pantheon -  a window in a dome or wall to the outside.  At Mission Hill, our oculus provides the only natural light into our underground barrel cellar, blasted out of volcanic rock that is otherwise hidden from the world.  Our complex Oculus Bordeaux-style wine is the result of meticulous selection int he vineyard estate with grapes that have been specifically nurtured for this rare wine. Hand-sorted grapes are gravity-filled into specially constructed French oak fermenters before gently laying the wine to rest in individual barrels.  Rich and powerful, this wine was sourced from designated Oculus blocks in our Osoyoos (100%) vineyard estates from low-yielding vines.

Tasting Notes
Firm and graceful, this polished red delivers a core of black currant, dark plum, and fig layered on top of black licorice and dusty earth details, all lending to the flavour's tension and traction. Despite the wine's dense, dark, and brooding personality, it is graceful and elegant with restrained oak influence and seamless integration of all elements.
