2016 Reserve Riesling Icewine

2016 Reserve Riesling 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 continual 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.
