Mission Hill Merlot Reserve 2021

Product description

In 1981, the Okanagan was largely undiscovered as a wine region, instead, it was renowned for the quality of its stone fruit orchards. Grape growers were just beginning to take risks, planting vines in unproven terrain. Despite these risks, the glacier-formed valley offered varying soil profiles, long, hot growing days, and diverse microclimates. These distinct subregions posed an opportunity to cultivate wine with unmistakable terroir. This potential inspired Mission Hill Family Estate’s vision for the future of Okanagan wine. After being recognized as Canada’s only five-time winner of Winery of the Year and receiving multiple best varietal awards on the international stage, they continue to draw inspiration from the valley and the vineyards they tend to. For them, the journey is just beginning.

Full-bodied and well structured, this wine is introduced with elegant notes of wild blackberry and dark cherry on the nose. The palate is rich with ripe dark fruits, refined tannins and a persistent finish.
