Mission Hill 2020 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.
This Reserve Merlot was grown on two Mission Hill estate vineyards - Black Sage Bench in Oliver, and Osoyoos. Black Sage Bench is an incredibly diverse vineyard with more than 60 different individual blocks, producing 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 the Bordeaux varietals to completely ripen for full flavour.
Mission Hill Family Estate Winery
Mission Hill Family Estate was founded with a vision for the future of wine. Continuing our pioneering history, we use sustainable, organic farming practices. By supporting these practices with modern technology, our varietals thrive in the valley’s diverse soil profiles. Then, they are carefully aged with new and Old World techniques, leaving you with wines that echo the terroir of the valley.
