2013 Silver Ranch Vineyard Riesling Icewine

2013 Silver Ranch Vineyard Riesling Icewine

A reflection of Proprietor Anthony von Mandl’s vision from three decades ago, the Terroir Collection showcases the Okanagan Valley's unique microclimates and diversity with each wine featuring a photographic image echoing an aspect of its home.

The top 3% of our estate fruit is hand-selected for these wines by our winemaker and each individual lot is carefully tasted throughout the winemaking process to ensure its quality level before the nal blend. The first step begins in the vineyards where we examine soil type, matching that with the clone by specic varietal, adapting to the climate, vineyard altitude and aspect, and the intense vine devotion that is a result of our careful precision farming. Because of this meticulous care, each offering is limited.

For us, the Terroir Collection is the heart of our passion.

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.
