Production
We named this wine Silver Ranch because, depending on where one is standing in the vineyard, one can see the canal in Black Sage that, in the winter, appears silver as does Lake Okanagan. Early explorers went along trade routes that traipsed through these vineyards and often used this area for winter camps. At Mission Hill Family Estate, handcrafting Icewine is definitely a labour of love considering the below freezing temperatures and early morning start to harvest the frozen grapes. The reward is immeasurable. An exceptional wine that can be enjoyed now, or cellared over the next 5 years.
