Description

Introducing Mission Hill Reserve Meritage, a wine that showcases the best of two estate vineyards – Black Sage Bench in Oliver and Osoyoos. Grown in these exceptional locations, our Reserve Meritage benefits from the unique microclimates and premium quality fruit, resulting in a wine of unparalleled flavor and complexity.

The Black Sage Bench vineyard boasts over 60 individual blocks, offering an astonishing range of fruit diversity. This diversity allows us to craft a wine with a remarkable array of flavors and characteristics. On the other hand, the Osoyoos vineyard benefits from the region’s warm and arid benchlands, which enjoy more than 200 frost-free days. This warm climate allows our Bordeaux varietals to fully ripen, resulting in wines with exceptional flavor and depth.

Our winemaker carefully ages our Mission Hill Reserve Meritage in a combination of French and American oak barrels, imparting subtle complexities and enhancing the wine’s structure. The result is a beautifully balanced wine with fresh flavors of blackberry, brambleberry, and dark cherry, complemented by subtle hints of vanilla. Each sip provides a delightful combination of freshness and structure, creating a truly memorable tasting experience.

The vineyard conditions leading up to the harvest of our Reserve Meritage were exceptional. A warm and dry start to the year was followed by a cool and wet spell in early June before an unprecedented midsummer heat. These conditions resulted in the earliest start of harvest on record, as well as the highest number of growing degree days. The exceptional climate and growing conditions contribute to the rich flavors and character of this remarkable wine.

Indulge in the remarkable pleasure of Mission Hill Reserve Meritage, where the finest fruit from our esteemed vineyards is transformed into a sensory masterpiece. Discover the fresh flavors, savor the hints of vanilla, and appreciate the structurally balanced finish. Elevate your wine experience with Mission Hill Reserve Meritage and discover the extraordinary flavors that the Okanagan Valley has to offer.
