2018 Reserve Riesling

2018 Reserve Riesling

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
Our 2018 Reserve Riesling was farmed in two of our estate vineyards in West Kelowna and Naramata. Our West Kelowna vineyard, perched on the brow of Mount Bourcherie, an inactive volcano, has steep, hillside vineyards with a southeast aspect. Our Naramata Ranch vineyard enjoys the Okanagan Lake's moderating influence, which provides ideal growing conditions for Riesling and an extended ripening period.
