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.
The 2017 harvest, lasting 66 days, was one of extremes. The harvest started later than anticipated, with a cool, wet spring. However, a record-breaking dry spell followed in July and August, with temperatures well above seasonal norms. This warm, dry summer resulted in a crop of small, concentrated berries that should produce wines of exceptional depth and intensity. The harvest concluded on October 30.
Aged 9 months in French oak.
This well-known heartbreak grape has found a charming home in our Estate Vineyards. Block-by-block we have done the detailed work to discover the optimum sites to harvest for the finest quality. Tantalizing aromatics of blackberry, and Lapin cherries draw you in with hints of dusty soil and cinnamon. In a word – sublime.
