2016 Reserve Vidal Icewine

2016 Reserve Vidal Icewine

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.

Production
Icewine is a labour of love. One has to be patient to wait for the grapes on the vine, and then pick the grapes in below freezing temperatures in the early hours to ensure they are at their optimum. This icewine was sourced from our Naramata Ranch estate vineyard. The combination of the vineyard’s beauty, diversity, and location in the heart of the Okanagan appellation makes it especially valuable. Naramata Ranch enjoys the lake’s moderating influence, the “suncatcher’s effect," providing ideal growing conditions and an extended ripening period.
