This organic red also utilizes biodynamic practices, and you can feel the brightness and lightness on the palate of this mix. Since we last saw this wine, the maréchal foch has been dropped to excellent effect, adding cabernet franc to merlot and syrah and fermenting it in all in wood tanks before ageing in neutral oaks for eight months. The delicate, juicy black and red fruit flavours punch well above their weight. Tannins are powdery smooth and light. Impressive local organic option for your roasted root vegetables or mushroom burger. (Anthony Gismondi)

The wine begins with aromas of spice cake and cherry. It is firm on the palate, with flavours of black currant mingled with cedar. 88.

Producer Description

Summerhill Pyramid Winery features organic and biodynamic wine grown in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in Kelowna, British Columbia. Organic practices have been an integral part of Summerhill since the Kelowna vineyard was purchased by the Cipes family in 1986. Producing wine organically has a very meaningful benefit to the environment, and some scientists suggest that eating organic foods greatly benefits our health as well. Aside from these benefits, we believe that organic practices allow for the grapes in our vineyards to honestly express their surroundings, providing deep, terroir-driven qualities that are a true articulation of Okanagan terroir.
 

“Be a conduit and allow your vision, your dream to come through – and fortify it every day."
