2016 Reserve Chardonnay

2016 Reserve Chardonnay

An early pioneer in the Okanagan Valley, today, Mission Hill Family Estate encompasses a broad spectrum of vineyard estates with more than 30 diverse microclimates. Our c ntinual experimentation, understanding of the soil and clones that best perform in specific areas, and technological investment, have led us to precision farming that is both sustainable and delivers ultra-premium grapes.

Our Reserve wines are handcrafted on the premise of “Selection” – selection in the vineyard and the cellar. We source our fruit from the top 15% of our estate vineyards and 75% of the same vineyard blocks are used to ensure consistency vintage to vintage. 

The illustration on our label is an original architect sketch from Tom Kundig when he and Proprietor Anthony von Mandl were designing the winery. The renowned Bell Tower is the focal point surrounded by the hillside where our winery sits.

Tasting Notes
Floral and tropical fruit aromas complement the bright acidity and rich texture that characterize this wine. Look for notes of lemon meringue pie in the lingering finish.

Vinification Notes
Our 2016 Reserve Chardonnaywas sourced from three of our estate vineyards – Oliver, Osoyoos, and Naramata Ranch. The Oliver Vineyard estate includes the blocks of vines that our original award-winning Chardonnay was sourced from 20 years ago providing an excellent foundation and key characteristics of our unique wine style. Osoyoos is comprised of arid benchlands that benefit from the Osoyoos Lake effect giving the area more than 200 frost-free days and the Naramata Ranch estate is a stunning beauty that also benefits from the lake’s moderating influence.
71% fermented and aged in oak
7.1 g/L
The 2016 harvest lasted 76 days and set records for being our longest harvest ever. The lack of heatwaves in the summer kept sugar levels and phenolic maturity in sync so that ripening progressed slowly and predictably. Enjoy vivid, deep flavours, great acidity, and excellent freshness.
