2019 Reserve Pinot Gris

2019 Reserve Pinot Gris

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.

Terrific texture and freshness with notes of stone fruit, fresh ginger and bright citrus all adding to a complex and balanced style of Pinot Grigio. A relatively short and delicate aging on the lees in French oak maintains the wine’s crisp and dry nature.

Production
Our 2019 Reserve Pinot Gris was sourced from two of our estate vineyards – Black Sage Road and Naramata Ranch. Each vineyard has a distinct microclimate lending unique flavour characteristics to the varietal before it becomes part of the final blend. Naramata Ranch is a winemaker’s dream with undulating elevations, multiple soil types and clones to select from, individualized blocks, and spectacular views. Black Sage Vineyard is a diverse vineyard with more than 60 different individual blocks providing an amazing array of premium quality fruit.
