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.
Intense black cherry in colour, our Reserve Merlot abounds with aromas of plum, blackberry, and mocha. Dusty tannins, indicative of the region, support the rich fruit. The lingering finish is tinged with espresso, sage, and anise. 13 months of oak barrel aging completed this wine.
The grapes were grown in two of the estate vineyards. Osoyoos, the region’s most southern area, is comprised of arid benchlands that benefit from the lake’s effect providing the region with more than 200 frost-free days. This warm climate allows this Bordeaux varietals to completely ripen for full flavour. Black Sage Bench is a diverse vineyard with more than 60 different individual blocks affording an amazing array of premium quality fruit.
