2019 Reserve Merlot

2019 Reserve Merlot

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.

Our 2019 Reserve Merlot was grown in two of our estate vineyards - Black Sage Bench in Oliver, and Osoyoos. Black Sage Bench is an incredibly diverse vineyard with more than 60 different individual blocks. This affords us an amazing array of premium quality fruit. Osoyoos, the region’s most southern area, is comprised of arid bench-lands that benefit from the lake’s effect providing the region with more than 200 frost-free days. This warm climate allows our Bordeaux varietals to completely ripen for full flavour.
