About this winery
Mission Hill Family Estate Reserve wines are elegant and balanced, reflecting our passion and commitment to viticultural and winemaking excellence. The limited quantity wines are produced from select vineyard properties and showcase the distinctiveness of the world-renowned Okanagan Valley.
A sublime experience for the senses. The nose entices with aromas of apricot, lemon, and jasmine. The mouthfeel exudes flavours of Granny Smith apple, fresh cut pineapple and a smooth creaminess. This wine is distinct with a complexity that is further uncovered with each sip. In a word – delicious.
The weather in 2015 was near perfect for grape growing. It began with an early, mild spring, with budburst two weeks early. The mild weather continued and the months of and June resulted in excellent fruit set. By the commencement of harvest, the season had broken average heat records. In September, temperatures cooled to near normal, and the rain stayed away providing a long and plentifully harvest which continued into the first couple of weeks of October. Overall, the extended harvest period allowed for uniform ripening and a very nice end to the season.
