Mission Hill - Terroir - Naramata Ranch Vineyard Chardonnay
Mission Hill Family Estate
The Terroir Collection showcases the Okanagan Valley's unique microclimates and diversity. The top 3% of all of Mission Hill’s estate fruit is hand-selected for these wines by the winemaker and each individual lot is carefully tasted throughout the winemaking process to ensure its quality level before the final blend. Because of this extra care, each offering is very limited with only a small amount of select barrels handcrafted.
Naturally moderated by its close proximity to Okanagan Lake, the Naramata Ranch Vineyard also features substantial elevation changes as well as breathtaking views of the dramatic landscape. By far, this is our most climatically and geologically diverse site. Red granite rock rests on the surface above granite bedrock, with no grass or cover crop. Each area of the vineyard has its own unique growing condition, allowing the winemakers to choose specific blocks to get the most out of the Chardonnay used to create this refreshing wine.
