2017 Reserve Rosé

2017 Reserve Rosé

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.

Vinification Notes
Our 2017 Reserve Rosé was sourced from our estate vineyards in Osoyoos. First planted in 1997, the Osoyoos Vineyard is the region’s most southern area and is comprised of arid benchlands that benefit from the lake’s effect providing the region with more than 200 frost-free days. The combination of the loamy sand soil and wonderful warm climate allows the grapes to completely ripen for full flavour.

Production
The 2017 growing season started later than anticipated due to a cool, wet spring; but a record-breaking dry spell followed in July and August with temperatures above seasonal norms. The late start resulted in a lower yield than expected but that reduced yield, along with a warm, dry summer, resulted in small, concentrated berries that produced wines of exceptional depth and intensity.
